The Blue Angels are a huge waste of fuel, cause pollution, kill birds, deafen citizens, and are inherently dangerous.

They are so cool and I LOVE it when they come to town. Especially when they fly over and around downtown buildings.

How much cooler would the Blue Angels be if they precision bombed portions of Bellevue?

That roar overhead is the sound of thousands of tax dollars being burned per second.

I love love love fighter jets far more than most people; more than once when I've spotted something fast go by the window at work I've cycled home via Boeing Field to go take a look. But in all honesty, the Blue Angels have gotten a little tired. The only thing I enjoy now are the annual claims that in 1989 they flew between (insert pair of tall downtown buildings here) (they most certainly did not.)

Let the whining begin. If you took all the people whining about the Blue Angels and put them in a room together, I'm sure they'd rival a jet engine in auditory volume.

@9, you have a point. Maybe this year they will do THIS:

Is the pay bridge going to be free during those times (and for the 30 minutes before/after)?

Those that claim to like fighter jets have likely never been anywhere near the receiving end of one. These machines are designed to kill people. Perhaps more accurately in this case, these things are designed to recruit people to kill people.

I don't care to play along.

@17: The planes are designed to outmaneuver other planes. It's the weapons systems that are designed to kill, and I'm pretty sure that the Blue Angels don't fly with live ordnance onboard.
Is archery not a worthwhile sport because the first use of the bow was to kill things?

@17 I can only hope being self righteous is as much fun as watching neat things go really fast.

I love the Blue Angels, and I live under the flight path and have four yappy little dogs. (who, strangely enough, don't get that worked up over them)

And for the record, they most certainly should NOT make 520 free during the times the I-90 bridge is closed. Sometimes adults have to deal with things like that, and the bridge needs to be paid for.

You know what's EVEN BETTER than seeing Jet Fighter planes fly low, is seeing them do the same and drop bombs on people. Now THAT'S American power at its best. So don't step out on line, bitch.
