Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort Air Show canceled

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

The 2013 Marine Crops Air Station Beaufort Air Show, which was scheduled to take place April 27 to April 28, has been canceled.

This news comes weeks after the Blue Angles said they were not going to be in this year's show because of automatic spending cuts.

The air station denied those claims, as well as rumors about the entire show being cancelled. Now it looks like those rumors are true, and folks in the Lowcountry are upset.

"I feel kind of upset about it because everyone was looking forward to it this year," said Charles Jones.

Officials say Headquarters Marine Crops made the decision to cancel the air show in order to minimize the fiscal impact on vital programs, operational readiness and mission capabilities possibly affected by sequestration.

No dates for future air shows have been set. For more information, visit https://www.facebook.com/MCASBeaufort
