PENSACOLA NAVAL AIR STATION, Fla. — The Blue Angels are set to return to the skies above air shows nationwide in 2014.

The Navy has announced that the popular flight demonstration team will have a full schedule for the 2014 season.

The team suspended its 2013 performance schedule this spring after forced federal spending cuts.

Adm. John Kirby announced on Monday that the Blue Angels and other Navy outreach groups — including the Leap Frogs parachute team and the Navy band — would return next year.
