More Disappointing News For Blue Angels Fans

Posted: Updated:
PENSACOLA, Florida -

More discouraging news for Blue Angels fans- the Navy's elite, flight demonstration team has canceled more shows.

At least eight air shows have been canceled because of federal budget cuts: three in April, four in May and one in June.

No word yet whether the big air show over Pensacola Beach in July will be affected by the sequester.

Earlier this year, the Department of Defense ordered the Navy to cut four billion out of its budget. Canceling Blue Angels air shows over the next six months would save 20 million dollars.

Thousands of Blues fans braved the cold weather at NAS Pensacola this morning to watch what could be the second to last practice in the near future.
