Security beefed up for Cherry Point Air Show

HAVELOCK, N.C. (WNCT) – Officials at Cherry Point are working to keep you safe if you attend the largest air show in the east.

Hundreds of folks will make their way to the Cherry Point Air Show this weekend.

WNCT spoke with base officials who said many of the security details can’t be released due to safety precautions but said there will be robust security scattered throughout the event.

“Just know that we’ll be working around the clock looking out, making sure that everybody that’s coming on and off base is safe,” said Lt. Maida Zheng with Cherry Point Public Affairs.

The air show will kick off Friday afternoon and continue until Sunday.
