Air show at Andrews won’t be back next year



[ad_1]
There was nothing but clear, sunny skies for the annual air show at Andrews Air Force Base last weekend. But guests young and old were disappointed that they’ll have to wait two years for the summertime tradition to return. With a price tag in excess of $2 million, the Defense Department is scaling back, limiting air shows across the country. The 55-year-old annual show will now happen every other year. Event organizers say the turnout was so strong that by mid-day Saturday, they were turning people away. More than 200,000 people watched skilled civilian and military pilots from every military branch push their planes to the limits. The Blue Angels, an elite Navy and Marine flying team, closed the show each day.
