Blue Angels To Resume Performances In 2014

Posted: Updated:

PENSACOLA NAVAL AIR STATION, Fla. -- PENSACOLA NAVAL AIR STATION, Fla. (AP) — The Navy's daredevil fighter jet pilots, the Blue Angels, are set to return to the skies above air shows nationwide in 2014.

The Navy has announced that the popular flight demonstration team will have a full schedule for the 2014 season.

The team suspended its 2013 performance schedule this spring after forced federal spending cuts. That led to the cancellation of several air shows across the U.S., as the Blue Angels are often the big draw for those attending.

Adm. John Kirby announced on Monday that the Blue Angels and other Navy outreach groups — including the Leap Frogs parachute team and the Navy band — would return next year.
