Blue Angels Grounded For Remainder of 2013 Demonstration Season

Posted: Updated:

Federal cuts mean a grounding of the Blue Angels.

A decision about their 2013 demonstration season was announced today by the Commander of Naval Air Forces.

The Blue Angels have performed at air shows around the world, including at the National Cherry Festival for more than 60 years.

Not scheduled to perform this year, the fighter pilot team is scheduled to perform at the National Cherry Festival in 2014.

Festival planners released a statement saying:

"It is our understanding that no final decisions have been made to modify the U.S. Navy Blue Angel schedule for 2014.  The Team announced in December 2012 that they would be performing at the 2014 National Cherry Festival.  Until the National Cherry Festival hears otherwise, we will continue to prepare for their arrival."
