US Navy Blue Angels Cancel Performances

(CNN) — Forced budget cuts have grounded the U.S. Navy’s famed Blue Angels.

The Navy has canceled all of the flight demonstration team’s performances for the rest of this year.

Officials say the move was caused by automatic budget cuts, known as sequestration.

The squadron will continue to train at its home station in Pensacola, Florida.
