FARGO – The Blue Angels have canceled their appearance at the Fargo AirSho, leaving organizers scrambling to figure out whether they can pull off the Aug. 10-11 event without their top act.


AirSho committee co-chairman Dick Walstad said he received a call Monday night from a Blue Angels’ liaison breaking the news.

“This is a huge blow to the Fargo AirSho Committee,” Walstad said. “But it’s the old story: If you have lemons, you try to make lemonade out of it.”
