JACKSONVILLE, ONSLOW COUNTY -

A New River Air Station base official says the 2013 air show has been canceled. The show was originally slated for May of 2013, according to fencecheck.com

The official says the cancellation is due to the large amount of construction on base; that would have made it difficult to accommodate the aircraft needed for the show.

Construction could continue to fiscal year 2014, so there's a chance the air show will not happen next year, according to base officials. On the air station's website, there's only a mention of a show in 2015.
