ANNAPOLIS, Md. (Tribune News Service) — After a slight delay due to inclement weather, the Blue Angels made their return to Annapolis Tuesday with a flyover just after 2 p.m. A full demonstration is slated for Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting.

"HERE THEY COME!" the Naval Academy tweeted around 2:14 p.m., about three hours after the jets were supposed to arrive.

Tuesday's demonstration ended around 4:25 p.m.

Thousands of visitors are expected to descend on Annapolis this week as the Naval Academy holds Commissioning Week festivities, including the Herndon Climb on Monday and capped off with graduation and commissioning ceremonies and a speech by President Joe Biden on Friday. The Blue Angels will make one final flyover at 10:04 a.m. just as the ceremony is starting.

The Blue Angels were originally scheduled to arrive between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday, with a flight demonstration scheduled at 2 p.m. Another flight demonstration is scheduled for 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Wednesday's forecast calls for more clouds and a high in the upper 60s.
