— A lot of people are probably nursing sore necks after staring at the sky all Saturday.

That's where the action was, as jets screamed through the sky over Pope Air Force Base yesterday, and paratroopers dropped to the ground in formation.

It was the annual Pope-Fort Bragg joint open house.

More than 20 planes were on display. There also were air assault demonstrations and a number of fly-bys.

The event showcases local Army and Air Force skills and capabilities.
