UPDATE: November Air Show
NAS PENSACOLA -- A civilian air show is in the works for Veterans Day weekend.
Usually, Naval Air Station Pensacola hosts the Blue Angels Homecoming show.
But this year sequestration has kept the Blues from practicing.
So now the base's "Morale, Welfare and Recreation" Department is talking with the Santa Rosa Island Authority about the "Wings Over Pensacola Air Festival"
The Blue Angels are only expected to be there to sign autographs.
However they will make plans just in case funding comes through in the next fiscal year and the Blues are flying again.
Oct 1 new budget comes if they fund Blue Angels, they should have enough time, no one is counting on it, I'm not counting on it...
The proposed air festival would include a Friday night civilian show at NAS Pensacola.
And then shows both Saturday and Sunday on the beach.
The Santa Rosa Island Authority board will discuss it tomorrow and make the final decision in September.
