Cherry Point says it will no longer hold an air show on the air station every year.
The base says the air show will return to a biennial schedule, meaning the show will be every two years.
Marines say the air show, which dates back to the mid-1940s, had been every two years for most of those years. In 2007, Cherry Point switched to an annual event.
This year's show will take off May 21st through the 23rd. After that the next Cherry Point Air Show will take place in 2012.
