Annual air show off for '12, will go every other year
By Sig Christenson, Express-News staff
The Air Force has some bad news for thousands of folks who've long been thrilled at the sight of jets roaring low in formation over throngs at San Antonio air shows.
Next year's performance has been grounded.
Thanks to budget cuts, the town often called Military City, U.S.A. will have air shows every other year starting in 2013. The move, revealed by Joint Base San Antonio, came as no surprise to Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff.
“When people say you can cut the budget and not hurt anything,” he said, “they're smoking pot.”
Joint Base San Antonio, which oversees support services at Fort Sam Houston and at Randolph and Lackland AFBs, said its $700 million annual operating budget will shrink by as much as a fifth. Next year's hiatus will yield big savings for the command, which spent $632,681 on this year's air show, held Oct. 29 and 30 at Randolph.
