Heads up: Blue Angels jet arriving at Boeing Field tomorrow

January 3, 2012 at 10:11 am | In Blue Angels, West Seattle news | 7 Comments

A West Seattle fan of the Blue Angels just asked us the other day if one of the jets would be here again this year for the Seafair winter planning meetings – and indeed, word just arrived, Blue Angels jet #7 is expected around 1:15 tomorrow afternoon at Boeing Field, with an 11 am Thursday departure planned. Seafair says Blue Angels #7 Lieutenant Mark Tedrow and #8 Lieutenant Todd Royles will be on board. This year’s airshow is set for August 3rd-5th. (Our coverage of last year’s winter visit is here.)

  3. Yes! I love getting my Blue Jets fix this time each year. Even though it’s only one jet and he’s just on the ground for a few hours. Now the countdown to Seafair 2012 can begin!

  5. All the federal taxes my family paid last year won’t cover the fuel bill of this flight. Not a fan.
