EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Undeterred by $85 billion in automatic military spending cuts, the Navy's Blue Angels are still expected to perform at an airshow in Evansville in July.
Organizers of the Hadi ShrinersFest tell the Evansville Courier & Press that they have received no cancellation from the jet performance team.
Shriners spokesman Dale Thomas says the team told organizers they intended to cancel their April shows and keep other show dates after that. But he says the real decision is up to Congress, which is currently battling over the automatic spending cuts.
He says organizers have lined up five other acts for the airshow and are still negotiating with two others.
Even if the Angels have to cancel, Thomas says the air show will go on as scheduled.
