Blue Angels cancel remaining shows for year including Eau Claire


Eau Claire (WQOW) - The U.S. Navy makes it official Tuesday, the Blue Angels won't be flying for the rest of the year.  

The Navy canceled its remaining performances including its show in Eau Claire, which was scheduled for September. Cutbacks were needed because of the federal sequester.  

Last month, a public affairs officer told WQOW News 18 they were holding out hope an agreement would be reached to keep the angels flying this summer.

On Tuesday, the Navy said it plans to continue aerial demonstrations in the future as the budget situation permits.
