The military has lifted the grounding of its precision flight teams, which means the Navy Blue Angels will be roaring through the skies of eastern Nebraska next summer.
Navy officials announced Tuesday the Blues will perform at Offutt Air Force Base's Defenders of Freedom Air Show July 19-20, 2014. The 2013 show, which was to feature the Air Force Thunderbirds, was canceled because of the federal budget sequester.
