CHICAGO — In a show of solidarity for first responders and other frontline workers in the coronavirus crisis, the famed U.S. Navy Blue Angels will fly over Chicago on Tuesday.
The group, a favored attraction of the city’s Air and Water Show, made the announcement via Twitter on Monday. The pilots plan to fly over Detroit and Indianapolis, as well.
The team is scheduled to hit Chicago’s airspace at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, flying over the western suburbs before taking a final bow along the city’s lakefront.
