BOSTON (CBS) – If you thought you saw fighter jets streaking over Boston Thursday afternoon you were right.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports

The Blue Angels were in town to practice for an event next year.

Watch the raw video:

Two planes made a couple of passes over Boston Harbor and the Charles River around 12:30 p.m.

The squadron was preparing for an appearance next summer when they will return to the city for Navy week during the 4th of July.

      It really ‘does’ make sense!

      I’m sure they took recon pictures on their pass’s to pick out land marks. They’ll study them & compute ‘time speed & distance’ for their program….(200th anniversary War of 1812)

      After all you wouldn’t want them to ‘bump’ into the ‘Zakim or Tobin’ bridge, would ya?
