Dozens of air shows cancel without military jets

FILE - In this Tuesday, July 3, 2012 file photo, the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute in before a baseball game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Colorado Rockies, in St. Louis. The Golden Knights, along with theU.S Navy's Blue Angels and the U.S. Air Force's Thunderbirds, have cancelled their 2013 seasons because of the automatic federal budget cuts causing about 60 cancellations thus far and affecting more than 200 of the approximately 300 air shows held each year.
