Dem city council member says Blue Angels should be banned from flying over San Francisco


The Blue Angels’ scheduled show in San Francisco, California, for Fleet Week was canceled Sunday due to weather conditions, and a Democrat city council member suggested the planes not be permitted in the city’s skies.

District 5 Supervisor Dean Preston, a self-described Democratic socialist, said the planes should be banned from the city’s airspace.

“The Blue Angels should not be allowed to fly over San Francisco,” he wrote on Twitter. “That’s it. That’s the tweet.”

Preston did not elaborate further on why he decided to take issue with the U.S. Navy’s fighter jet demonstration squadron and his office did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
