Budget cuts cancel Gator Fly In air show
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The effects of sequestration forced event organizers to cancel the third annual Gator Fly In.
The Gator Fly In was scheduled to be held April 27 at the Gainesville Regional Airport.
The show usually brings in thousands of visitors to get an up close look at military aircraft, including the F/A-18 Hornet.
A message on the air show’s Facebook page reads “we hope that things will be different next year so that we may be able to provide an excellent aviation event for our community.”
Around half of the $85 billion in forced federal spending cuts will come from the defense budget.
