|Pelicans over the San Clemente Pier|
Speaking of aerial demonstrations, today's traditional Indy 500 military jet flyover was performed by civilian aircraft this year.
“Sequestration” mandated DOD budget cuts has grounded all military flight demos including the Thunderbirds & Blue Angels.
These cuts will also affect the MCAS Miramar Air Show with which we have been involved for years. What’s happening for 2013? Although the Blues won’t fly the base is still pressing forward to plan and execute the show. The final decision will be made in July. As for the pelicans I’m glad they’re ignoring Sequestration memo. Their budgets are in order.
