JOINT BASE CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Joint Base Charleston officials that this year's Air Expo,
originally scheduled for early June is canceled.
"The decision to
cancel our Air Expo was made shortly after we were informed the U.S. Air
Force Thunderbirds had canceled their performance schedule as a consequence
of sequestration," said Col. Richard McComb, Joint Base Charleston
commander. "We value the patriotism and support of our community, but in
light of our current fiscal challenges, commanders at all levels must make
sound decisions to use resources wisely."
Before sequestration hit on March 1, Joint Base officials said they were planning to hold an off-base Air Expo featuring the U.S. Air Force
Thunderbirds over the Charleston Harbor.
