Over the 4-day Seafair weekend, the Bellevue sky becomes one of the prime playgrounds for these mighty Blue Angels and their spectacular aeronautics. So if you're anywhere near or in downtown Bellevue during the scheduled practices and performances, then you are in for a roaring, eye-popping treat. Simply head to the nearest window and look out and up! If you're already outside, then just look up! Other notable Blue Angels viewing spots include:

Blue Angels Performance

  • Friday, August 5:  3:05pm (Seafair airshow)
  • Saturday, August 6:  3:05pm (Seafair airshow)
  • Sunday, August 7:  3:05pm (Seafair airshow)

I-90 Bridge
For 2022, a new flight path will allow the Blue Angels to soar over the Bellevue/Seattle area during the 2022 Seafair Air Show without closing the Interstate 90 floating bridge. In the past, the Washington State Department of Transportation has been required to close the bridge by the Federal Aviation Administration to keep the public safe and minimize distractions. This year's flight path eliminates the need for a closure.
