No Blue Angels For Miramar Air Show (+Video)
Tuesday, April 9, 2013
According to a Naval Air Forces news release:
Recognizing budget realities, current Defense policy states that outreach events can only be supported with local assets at no cost to the government.
This is one of many steps the Navy is taking to ensure resources are in place to support forces operating forward now and those training to relieve them.
The Blue Angels are a major draw for the Miramar Air Show, as the website for the show attests. (See screen shot at left.) As of this morning, the homepage was still advertising the Blue Angels for the upcoming October 2013 show.
The Blue Angels squadron will continue to practice at its home station in Pensacola, Florida.
