PHOTOS: Scenes from Blue Angels finale day

The Blue Angels‘ final 2023 performance in Seattle is over as of three-plus hours ago. We have reader photos to share – above, Monica Zaborac‘s classic view of their downtown flyby, from West Seattle; below, Erin Szekely sent a view from Seacrest:

      Thank God it was perfect weather and a safe, wonderful show for hundreds of thousands of Blue Angels fans of all ages. Like Taylor Swift in the sky, but no uber-expensive tickets.

    What a wonderful day at Genoese  Park.  The air show was super fantastic.  Everybody was having a good time and respectful of people around them.
