The Blue Angels were in Seattle Saturday - but could you see them?

The Blue Angels were in Seattle doing runs up Puget Sound on Friday when Wayne Pridemore took these photos.

They were scheduled to do a show on Saturday afternoon. I can't find anything to say that it was rescheduled.

Puget Sound is a busy place

Saturday was marked by an all day cloud cover with not one ray of sun coming through across Shoreline - north Lake Washington. My radar map says it was even cloudier to the south.

So did they fly? And if so, could you see them?

Either way, there's another chance on Sunday afternoon.

I thought I could hear them Saturday. Today, there are loud airplane noises. Im inn West Seattle. Too cloudy to see planes

We saw the Saturday show from the top of the Columbia Tower. Pretty cool especially when they did a fly-by of the tower.

The Navy’s Blue Angels performed this past weekend August 5-6. A typical air show generates 300,000 pounds or 136 metric tons of CO2 into the air in a single show. That is the same as 30 cars driving 30 miles round trip for one year at 22 miles per gallon. These shows continue as we all face ongoing climate emergencies. Society rapidly needs to change its priorities.
