Seymour Johnson Cancels Air Show

Posted October 9, 2001

— Seymour Johnson Air Force Base has cancelled its air show scheduled for Nov. 3.

According to officials, the decision to cancel the event was based on air strikes against Afghanistan over the weekend and the indication that these attacks will probably continue.

The base says it could not plan and conduct an air show without potential risk to ongoing military operations.
