Blue Angels Visit "Up In The Air"
Friday, 01 March 2013

March 1--  There's a chance the Navy's Blue Angels won't make it to this year's Vidalia Onion Festival Air Show.

According to Reuters News Agency, the flight demonstration team has already bowed out of several air shows around the country because of cuts to the Defense Department budget.

Marsha Temples of the Vidalia air show committee says the Blue Angels have told her they'll have a decision about the Vidalia show by mid-March.  "We'll have an air show regardless," Temples says, "but obviously we want the Angels because they draw the biggest crowds."

According to Reuters, "Blue Angels shows scheduled in more than two dozen cities between April and September are expected to be canceled as part of the cuts, said the team's spokeswoman, Lieutenant Katie Kelly. Some shows featuring the Blue Angels already have been called off in the face of budget uncertainties."
