Air show goes on

PENSACOLA, Fla. -- Although sequestration has grounded the Navy Blue Angels from participating in the summer air show at Pensacola Beach, the show is being held with an all-civilian lineup. Twenty-four civilian aircraft will participate in the show Friday and Saturday. The big question for beach businesses is whether a show without the Navy flight demonstration team, based at nearby Naval Air Station Pensacola, will draw as many visitors.
