    Shame, but to be fair they're expensive to operate. I'd rather see them cut entertainment than actual combat flights (which is probably coming as well)
     
  2. they cancelled 2013??? are we going straight to 2014...?

    Didnt they cancel Thunderbirds a long time ago?

    People arent quite as in to marrionettes as they used to be, aside from Team America.

    A real shame, I grew up watching these units perform and they were what inspired my love of aviation.

    Yes, they're expensive, but I think they do more for recruiting young pilots than anything else.
