July air show cancelled

ESCANABA – The 2013 “Thunder Over Delta County” air show scheduled for July 26 – 28 in Escanaba has been cancelled.

The cancellation is due to the March 1 sequestration budget cuts, according to the Northern Flights Air Show Committee, along with the Delta County Airport and the Delta County Airport Advisory Board. These cuts resulted in the four military organizations cancelling all 2013 air shows and all support to public events.

This includes the cancellation of support to all air shows, tradeshows and flyovers, including funerals and military graduations. Additionally, the Air Force will cancel the Thunderbirds’ entire 2013 season beginning April 1. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels have also canceled the remainder of their schedule, beginning April 1.

“Thunder Over Delta County” is scheduled for July 26-27 of 2014.
