Organizers: Fleet Week will be economic boom to Baltimore

Maryland Fleet Week and Flyover Baltimore brings fun and excitement by sea, by sky and on land. Visitors can meet sailors, Marines and Coast Guardsmen, as well as see firsthand the latest capabilities of today's maritime services. More than 2,300 sea service members are expected to participate this year. Organizers feel Fleet Week will be a huge economic boom, not just for Baltimore City, but for the county. Lt. Cmdr. Carlo Amunategui, captain of Canada's HMCS Glace Bay, said there is a real sense of excitement from not only him and his crew, but other crews in town from all over the world.
