Deep budget cuts in Washington mean military flight teams are expected to be no-shows at air shows across the U.S. starting this spring, leaving dozens of host cities bracing for thinner crowds and lost tourism dollars. When $85 billion in automatic cuts kicked in March 1, 2013, the Air Force canceled its air shows at bases from Florida to Arizona. It also grounded its team of formation-flying pilots, the Thunderbirds. The Army�s Golden Knights parachute team has also canceled performances. The Navy�s famous Blue Angels say military commanders �intend to cancel� their April shows. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull, File)
