Budget Cuts Cancel Air Show

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.
