Wings over Wayne Airshow this weekend


GOLDSBORO, Wayne County - Seymour Johnson Air Force Base will be the site for the biennial Wings Over Wayne event, which will be this Saturday and Sunday.

The free event is a way for the air base to show its thanks and appreciation for the ongoing support of the base and its mission. It's also a chance to recognize the 75th anniversary of the 4th Fighter Wing and military aviation in our state.

Gates will open at 8 a.m. both days.

The two-day event will showcase The Blue Angels, the premier aviation show in the country. Also performing will be the US Army Black Daggers, Tora! Tora! Tora!, The Combined Arms Demo and more.
