Los Angeles residents in some areas will be treated to a brief flyover of the U.S. Navy’s elite Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Team on Sunday, September 22 between 6:00PM to 7:00 PM as they do an orientation tour over the City.

The planned route is to enter the San Fernando Valley from the northwest to Burbank Airport, Dodger Stadium, circle Downtown LA to the Observatory and the Hollywood sign, across LAX and down to the Harbor over the battleship USS Iowa. Residents in nearby areas should be able to see them from open areas.
The Blue Angels will be transitioning from their Central Valley show this weekend and heading to San Diego for their next performance. For more details on show locations, please visit www.blueangels.navy.mil.
