Sequestration Update: Navy Cancels 2013 Blue Angels Schedule

April 11th, 2013

The U.S. Navy has cancelled the remaining 2013 performances of its Blue Angels Flight Demonstration Squadron. This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating in forward areas now and those training to relieve them. According to a statement issued yesterday (Tuesday) morning, “The Navy intends to continue aerial demonstrations in the future as the budget situation permits.”
