Blue Angels to fly over Chicago – US Navy Salutes Health Care Workers – May 12, 2020
CHICAGO (WLS) — The U.S. Navy Blue Angels will salute first responders and other essential workers as they fly over Chicago Tuesday.
The world-renowned Navy pilots have been paying tribute with a series of flyovers in major American cities.
The flights will be funded by existing operations costs as part of the groups community outreach programs.
The Blue Angels have announced the times and flight path for their salute.
The 15-minute flyover will begin at 11:45 a.m. as the Blue Angels fly west from the lakefront over Chicago’s South Side, then southwest over Oak Lawn before turning northward and flying back over the city’s Southwest Side, including Gage Park and Back of the Yards.
The flight path will then take them from the South Loop to the Northwest Side by 11:51 a.m., turning south near Norridge and flying over the near western suburbs of Franklin Park, Northlake and Melrose Park.
The Blue Angels will then head east over Oak Park and the city’s Southwest Side before heading north along the Kennedy Expressway. Cutting across Chicago’s North Side, the pilots will make a loop over Lake Michigan near the Evanston border, then fly south along Chicago’s entire lakefront around noon.

This year she will again be present on Saturdays from 2-4 p.m. throughout the entire duration of the market from November 15th – December 24th for the 24th Annual Christkindlmarket Chicago on Daley Plaza.
Keeping with the tradition from previous years, the Christkind will be part of the Grand Opening Ceremony at the Preview Party, reciting her prologue translated from the original German, to welcome visitors to the Christkindlmarket Chicago. Additionally, during the market those young and young at heart will have the opportunity to meet and take pictures with her as she roams the market, sharing German holiday traditions.
