The Blue Angels are returning

(Cleveland) The familiar roar over the skies of Cleveland Labor Day Weekend will be back next year. The U.S. Navy Blue Angels have announced they will return to the 2014 Cleveland National Air Show.

The Department of Defense has approved the jet demonstration team's 2014 schedule.

This year's Cleveland National Air Show was a victim of sequester cuts.  The 2013 Air Show was canceled because of the last-minute cancellation of the Blue Angels.  Air Show spokeswoman Kim Dell says they were planning for a 2014 event, even if there were going to be no military events.

The Air Show runs Labor Day Weekend August 30th to September 1st. More than 100,000 visitors attend, bringing in an estimated $7.1 million dollars for the city.
