Grounded by federal cuts and stripped of their $35 million budget, the Navy's Blue Angels flying team looked like they were grounded for good, until Tuesday.

The Pentagon announced that the Navy has found other places to eliminate $35 million so the Blue Angels will keep flying next year.

Their schedule includes Bay Area performances for Fleet Week next October 11 and 12.

The precision flying team was grounded by federal cuts in April and Fleet Week was cancelled when the federal government shut down October 1.
