MCAS Cherry Point Air Show

MCAS Cherry Point
Marine Corp Air Station Cherry Point
Havelock , NC 28533
May 4, 2018 – May 6, 2018

Event Description

Call your family and friends and mark your calendars for eastern North Carolina’s biggest, baddest, fastest and loudest outdoor event May 4-6, 2018!

The commanding officer of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point invites you to visit the Marine Corps’ largest air base for the 2018 MCAS Cherry Point Air Show, featuring the world’s top aviation aerobatic team, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels. And for the first time ever, the Cherry Point show will feature two world-class jet aerobatic teams when the Canadian Snow Birds jet team joins the lineup!

Beginning with a spectacular night show on Friday, May 4, the skies will light up with jet afterburners, jet-assisted takeoffs, wingtip pyrotechnics, sky-diving demonstrations, incredible speed demonstrations by the jet truck Shockwave, plus the crowd-pleasing “wall of flame,” all culminating with a massive fireworks display.

Saturday and Sunday will both have full day shows featuring a dizzying variety of military and civilian aerobatic demonstrations. You and your family will get up close and personal to dozens of historic and modern aircraft displays, as well as a wide array of military vehicles and equipment. The show will offer children’s activities, an outdoor recreational show and much more. The air show narrator will talk you through a Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration as air and ground Marine combat forces simulate an assault on enemy positions right in front of your eyes! Individual demonstrations, such as one by the Marine Corps’ AV-8B Harrier, will make it clear why the Marine Corps is the finest fighting force in the world. FREE live concert on Saturday night! Gates open Saturday and Sunday at 8 a.m.

As always, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will provide the grand finale both days!
