This past summer the Defenders of Freedom Open House and Air Show at Offutt in Bellevue was cancelled by the Pentagon due to budget uncertainties and sequestration. Offutt officials announced this week that the 2014 event is a go and will be held July 19th and 20th.
Since 1972 the event has been cancelled a handful of times due to runway repairs or bad weather.
The event draws upwards of 200-thousand people each year to the base. Next year’s event features the Blue Angels – the U-S Navy’s flight demonstration team.
