HILLSBORO, OR (KPTV) -

The Oregon International Air Show will happen this year without a performance by the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels.

Air Show organizers confirmed that to Fox 12 Monday night.

The Blue Angels are grounded for the entire 2013 season due to sequestration cuts that are affecting several government agencies.

Air Show organizers said they will bring in the U.S. Patriots Jet Team to replace the Angels.

Organizers said they were disappointed that the Blue Angels are grounded, but that they were excited to host the Patriots.

The Oregon International Air Show is July 26 to 28, 2013, at the Hillsboro Airport.
