Quonset Air Show Cancelled Thanks to Sequestration
This year's Quonset Air Show is being canceled due to federal sequestration budget cuts. The cutbacks led to all of the air show's military acts pulling out of the event. Under Defense Department rules, the air show could not consist of only civilian air acts.
The air show regularly draws over 100,000 people over the last weekend in June. The air show has been running for over twenty years at Quonset Point.
