SAN DIEGO, Calif. (13 On your Side) – The Miramar Air Show in San Diego became the latest casualty of the government shutdown.

The 58th Annual Aerial Extravaganza was scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar.

Even before the cancellation, the show was scaled back from three days to two after the Defense Department cut spending, known as "sequestration," earlier this year.

The show also featured the Blue Angels.

The Marine Corps Air Station apologized for cancelling the air show and promised to refund sponsors who paid to be a part of the event.
