The Navy’s Blue Angels jets began arriving in Seattle today for their show at the Seafair celebration this weekend.

They’ll practice Thursday and Friday and perform Saturday and Sunday over the hydroplane race course on Lake Washington.

During the practices and air show, the Interstate 90 floating bridge will be closed to traffic.

Three Navy ships arrived in Seattle today, too.

The amphibious transport dock ship New Orleans, the guided missile cruiser Bunker Hill and guided missile destroyer Halsey will dock on the waterfront with three Canadian Navy ships and a Coast Guard vessel. They’ll be available for public tours through the weekend.
