Budget cuts may permanently ground Blue Angels

(WXYZ) - It may be time to say 'bon voyage' to our friends, the Blue Angels.

For now, automatic budge cuts will ground the elite military air show.

This means no flyovers for funeral services or academy graduations. It also means we won't see the Angels above Comerica Park this summer.

The cuts would save about 38 million.

Furloughed federal workers, reduced access to national parks and fewer social programs are also expected to result from the cuts.
