Budget Cuts Cancel Air Show

Posted: Updated:

The Air Force has canceled all aviation support at public events due to budget cuts. 

In previous years Sheppard Air Force Base has hosed its Biennial Air Show in odd-numbered years, and Freedom Fest in between.  Sheppard PIO George Woodward said that there is a possibility of having a show in 2014.

They are going to re-evaluate the program so there are no cancellations in the future.  Cancellation of flying activities doesn't pertain to the flying missions of the base. The training missions were made a priority at the base.
