Blue Angels Grounded, Says CBS

This will be the third year in a row without the Navy's precision flying team if grounding continues.

The Blue Angels will be grounded this year due to sequestration, according to CBS News

While the Navy's precision flying team continued performing at some shows after sequestration was announced, they had cancelled a number of other appearances. 

Annapolis still remains active on the team's schedule as of right now, but a grounding would cancel all appearances. 

In Annapolis, the Blue Angels had been scheduled to fly in the much-loved performance over the Severn River on May 22, with a graduation fly-over on May 24. These appearances were to be in conjunction with the U.S. Naval Academy's Commissioning Week events.

As some might remember, the group did not perform in Annapolis last year, due to a change in schedule of Commissioning Week events by the former superintendant of the Academy. Two years ago, the Annapolis performance and fly-over were canceled, due to a safety stand-down period imposed on the team.
