Blue Angles 2013 season over

PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Navy has canceled all 2013 air shows and practices for the Blue Angles flight demonstration team. Team Cmdr. Tom Frosch spoke about the cancelations Tuesday at Sherman Field at Naval Air Station Pensacola, where the team is based. With a signature F/A-18 serving as a backdrop, Frosch expressed hope the team will be back next year. The Blue Angles will fly up to 11 hours a month in Pensacola, just over a quarter of the 40 hours a month they normally fly. It's a level to keep the pilots safe and efficient. (Source: Pensacola News Journal, 04/10/13)
