Teddy bears in windows, flickering lights, honking, cheering, singing.

Now get ready to add the Blue Angels to the list of ways the nation is honoring health care workers.

Here’s what you need to know about the precision-flying Navy airplanes that are set to pass over Chicago on Tuesday.

The flyover is scheduled to begin at 11:45 a.m., although times are subject to change.

The planes will begin on the South Side on a route that takes them over the Southwest and Northwest Sides of the city. The planes will then head as far north as Evanston before returning south along the lakefront.

Chicagoans are being advised to watch from the safety of their homes while quarantining.

The planes will also be flying over Detroit and Indianapolis on Tuesday.
