Blue Angels come roaring back for Fleet Week

Four members of the Blue Angels pass in front of Alcatraz Island as pilots run through a final rehearsal in the skies in 2012.

It’s not too late to stock up on earplugs or buy doggie Xanax for other members of your household. The Blue Angels come roaring back over the San Francisco skyline this weekend as part of a long list of events happening around Fleet Week. The F/A-18 Hornets start practice runs at noon on Thursday, Oct. 8 (go ahead and postpone that meeting now), and the clamor gets into full swing on Friday, Oct. 9, with the opening of the Marina Green Festival (which runs through the weekend), the Parade of Ships under the Golden Gate Bridge and official air show. Along with the Blue Angels’ death-defying sky acrobatics, it also features demos by parachute teams, stunt pilots and — why not? — a United Airlines 747. The program repeats on Saturday and Sunday, with even more fanfare — and larger crowds.
 
Fleet Week 2015 Events: 10 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, and Friday, Oct. 9. 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, and Sunday, Oct. 11. Marina Green; SF Piers 15/17, 30-32, 50, 80; and other locations. For a full listing of events, visit www.fleetweeksf.org.
