Federal spending cuts that are set to take effect Friday may mean no military jets will participate in the air show during this year's Thunder Over Louisville.

Wayne Hettinger, who produces the air show, told The Courier-Journal that more civilian acts have been signed up to fill out the event on April 20.

During previous shows, Hettinger said Navy jet fighters such as the FA-18F "Super Hornet" and Air Force jets such as the A-10 "Warthog Tank Killer" have thrilled crowds.

Due to the impending budget cuts, U.S. military jet teams have been grounded.
