Blue Angels will fly over Milwaukee Wednesday

MILWAUKEE- Pilots with the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels, will fly over the city of Milwaukee on Wed., June 18, for a scheduled team photo shoot.

The Blue Angels will fly the squadron's six-jet F/A-18 Hornet Delta Formation

over Lake Michigan on the eastern side of Milwaukee at approximately 250 knots.

A seventh jet will be flying abreast of the formation to photograph the Delta with the city in

the background.

The photo shoot is being conducted for the Blue Angels official pictorials and will

take place between 1:30 and 2:20 p.m. CDT.

This is not a media event; the photo shoot is for the team's photographers only, but will be visible to the general public.

The Blue Angels are scheduled to fly in 68 performances at 35 locations in 2014

and 64 performances at 34 locations in 2015 throughout North America, including the Milwaukee Air and Water Show this weekend.

It marks the first time the Navy pilots are in the show here since 2010.
