NBC News: U.S. Navy to cancel Tampa Blue Angels show

Posted: Updated:

NBC News has learned the U.S. Navy is expected to announce that they intend to cancel the Blue Angels shows for all of April 2013. This includes a show scheduled for Tampa, FL.

The precision flight team wows spectators at air shows with their skills. Cancellations would also include shows in Texas, Georgia and South Carolina.

The Navy hasn't made a decision about the rest of the year yet, a senior U.S. military official says, adding that they are still hoping to salvage some of the season.

The move comes as more than $85 billion in automatic cuts to the military budget taking effect Friday, NBC News reported.
