Blue Angels cancel 2013 flyovers

Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- You won't see the Blue Angels flying over any events this year.

The U.S. Navy has canceled the rest of the demonstration team's 2013 season because of federal budget cuts.

That includes performances in Rockford in June and Eau Claire in September.  

The Blue Angels have performed at air shows around the world for more than 60 years.

The Air Force also announced Tuesday it's grounding about a third of its combat force because of the cuts.
