Most remarkable was the large presence of special forces command. Next to some fixed wing aircraft like an AC-130, a total of three different helicopters were present. The small MH-6M Cayuse was sitting next to his larger brother the MH-47, but it was a soviet built helicopter which was the star of the show. An all white civil registered Mi-8 with a large question mark took all the attention. Although owned by a "semi" civil company this Hip operates for special opera- tions command. Another Russian build aircraft in service with the United States forces was the L-39C flying for the test pilot school. Several KC-135s and DC coded F-16s could be found at the other side of the static show. By taking the bus to the other side parking you could see some of these birds. With Beaufort and Cherry Point air shows in the same weekend the organisation didn't have that many choice for the flying dis- plays. One could enjoy the F-22A, F/A-18 and A-10 solo displays. Flying display aircraft were parked next to the static, so even spare aircraft could have been noted with some effort. Although the flying display wasn't that shocking, the static show compensated for that. Still the open house is a good opportu- nity to catch some of the presidential helicopters and 1st HS UH-1Ns.
