MARINE CORPS AIR STATION CHERRY POINT, N.C. - The 2014 Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point Air Show will take place May 16-18 at Cherry Point.

The show was originally canceled in early December when budget uncertainty and sequestration made the air show unfeasible. The decision to reinstate the show was made after concerns for this year’s budget were addressed with the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014.

The Cherry Point planning committee is hosting a theme competition, seeking recommendations from the general public. The winning theme for the 2012 air show was “Celebrate the Heritage.” The individual whose theme is selected this year by the commanding officer of Cherry Point will receive an assortment of air show related prizes, to include a ride in one of the featured aircraft.

Submissions are limited to one per person, no more than six words and no art work is required. The deadline for submissions is Feb. 14. All theme ideas must be submitted through the online form on http://www.cherrypointairshow.com/Theme.asp.
Performers this year include The Black Diamond Jet Team, Smoke-N-Thunder, the fastest JetCar in Air Show Industry, Aeroshell, the North American AT-6 Texan, Bill Leff, Dan Buchanan, OTTO, Hubie Tolson, B-52 Panchito, CAF Corsair, Pedro, MiG-17F and Mike Wiskus.
