SAN DIEGO, Ca. -- The Navy has canceled the remaining 2013 performances of the Blue Angels due to national budget cuts.
The Defense Department announced Tuesday air show events, involving the Blue Angels
, can only be held when local municipalities pay the entire cost.
The Navy says it is taking steps to ensure resources are in place to support operating forces.
The Navy intends to continue air shows in the future as the budget situation permits.
The Blue Angels
were born in Jacksonville. The first flight demonstration took place in 1946.
