People in Seattle will hear a familiar noise from the sky tomorrow. The Navy's Blue Angel #7 is making a one-day visit, part of the preparation for Seafair's annual summer event. 

The jet arrives between 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at Boeing Field. It will depart Thursday at noon.

According to a statement from Seafair, two members of the Navy's elite flying class will be on board the plane. KING-TV reports the new year brings various commemorations of a noteworthy Navy milestone:

The Blue Angels' performances at the 2011 Seafair will commemorate the centennial of naval aviation.  The official kick-off will take place on February 10 in San Diego.
