TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. (AP) -- The 2013 air show at a Florida Panhandle military base has been canceled because of budget cuts.

U.S. Air Force Lt. Melanie Holiday says that officials at Tyndall Air Force Base had been planning for their March show when senior military officials told them to stop.

Holiday said Friday that budget cuts were to blame.

About 75,000 people attended the Gulf Coast Salute Open House and Air Show in 2011. It's a longstanding tradition in Bay County, though it has been canceled periodically for various reasons.
