Runway construction cancels air show at New River

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

Another air show in the east is cancelled.

But this time, base officials tell 9 On Your Side it happened for reasons other than sequestration.

Before the cuts, New River Air Station cancelled its air show because of construction.

Crews are working on a project to re-do the runway.

Base officials expect the construction to continue through next year.
