Sequester Cuts Ground Blue Angels

Posted: Updated:

The Blue Angels visit to the Valley this summer is the latest victim of federal budget cuts.

The Navy has canceled all remaining 2013 performances for the popular precision flying team.

The Blue Angels were scheduled to appear at the Fargo AirSho in August.

Valley News Live spoke with AirSho co-chair Mike Haugen who says the Blue Angels contacted them Monday to inform organizers they would not be appearing in Fargo this summer.

AirSho leaders will be meeting Tuesday afternoon to discuss the fate of the show in 2013.  Haugen expects to announce a final decision by the end of next week. 

Haugen stressed that there is a lot more to the AirSho than the Blue Angels and they may be able to come up with something else.
