    I can’t tell from looking at the BA info if they’ll be closing I90 this year or not for the practices. I have chemo to get to and I’m really hoping it’s like last year, when they didn’t close it down, but is there any info on this?

    • WSB August 2, 2023 (11:19 am)

      No, they will not. They changed things a few years back so that would no longer be required.

        Thank you so much! That’s a relief! 

  • air show question August 2, 2023 (11:24 am)

    I’m not a plane aficionado, but had a dumb plane question.  I googled all the planes listed on the air show schedule and did not see bi-planes listed.  That’s one of the parts of the show I’ve always enjoyed (the fun tricks from the bi-planes). Does anyone know if they are part of the show this year, or when they are scheduled?   They were usually in the early part of the day.  Thanks!

      https://www.seafair.org/seafairairshow Schedule -also if you scroll down it shows  names & pics of all the planes  in the show.

        Thanks! I had looked through all the posted schedules but didn’t scroll further to see those photos, lol.

    Does anyone know what was going on at Lincoln Park today? The whole south-end parking lot was closed to the public, at least at 11:45. Made things a little tricky getting to swim lessons at Colman Pool. If it’s going to be a recurring thing this summer we will plan around it.

    They flew over around 1:40. Great to see them!

Sorry, comment time is over.
