DETROIT (WKZO) -- A tradition at Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers will not be seen or heard this year.

The military flyover by A-10 aircraft from Selfridge Air National Guard Base has been grounded by the federal sequester.  The Air Force recently announced that all demonstration flights have been cancelled for the rest of the year.

The demonstrations by the jets from Selfridge or the Toledo Air National Guard base have been going on for over a decade.
