Seafair-bound Blue Angels will fly over Seattle on Monday afternoon.

The famous F/A-18 jets of the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron will soar above the west side of the city’s coastline, passing the Space Needle, at around 12:30 p.m., according to a Blue Angels news release.

The Blue Angels will practice their razzle-dazzle Thursday and Friday. The Washington State Department of Transportation has scheduled I-90 bridge closures for drivers, bikers and walkers alike during the practice and the full show.

The squadron’s full-fledged performance at the Boeing Seafair Airshow will take place Saturday and Sunday.

The closure schedule, between I-5 and Island Crest Way on Mercer Island, is as follows, according to the WSDOT website:

Thursday, July 31: 9.45 a.m. to noon and from 1:15 p.m. to 2:40 p.m.

Friday, Aug. 1: 12:15 p.m. to 12:40 p.m.
