The USAF has announced that due to the sequestration budget cuts, it is suspending all participation at public events for the rest of the year.
That means no open houses at USAF bases. No airshows. No Air Force aircraft will participate in any civilian airshow. The Thunderbirds season has been cancelled before it even starts. Heritage Flights - gone. Flyovers - none. Aircraft demonstrations - nada.
No statement yet from the Navy or Marines, but I suspect they will do the same.
So, we can't afford to have airshows. But, we can afford to spend billions on Obamaphones ... makes perfect sense in a liberal frame of mind.
Somewhere, our Commie-in-Chief is laughing his ass off (probably on the golf course)...
