Blue Angels Swoop Through Cleveland Today




In preparation for Cleveland's 2014 Labor Day Air Show, two members of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels are stopping by Cleveland this afternoon.

If you're near Burke Lakefront Airport around 4 p.m. today, look skyward, and you could see Blue Angels numbers seven and eight swoop through in their F/A-18 Hornet, before meeting up with air show officials and supporting organizations to hash out the details for this year's event.

If you recall, last year's show was canceled due to sequestration, and Clevelanders east to west were pissed.

For 2014, Cleveland is one of 35 cities selected to host the Blue Angels.
