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.
