Instead of having multiple, high-caliber, high performance jet demonstration teams (like the Blue Angels, Thunderbirds, etc.), either completely eliminate them or combine them into a single, highly competitive team. As U.S. Citizens, we all love these bad-ass, high energy, screaming jet teams. But in these fiscally challenging times even the Department of Defense needs to cut out some of the fancy shows. We will save MILLIONS of dollars per year in fuel, maintenance, travel, training,and equipment costs (as well as military lives) by either completely cutting out these teams or reducing them to one NATIONAL MULTISERVICE show team.
