Helicopter Training Planned In Beaufort County

Some residents in Beaufort County can expect to hear an unusual amount of noise coming from the sky Monday evening.

Cherry Point marines will be conducting helicopter training around the areas of Pantego and Belhaven.

The training is scheduled to take place between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Two Cobra helicopters will fly at or above 1000 feet in the air along the US 264 corridor at that time.

Officials say the training is a valuable opportunity for the pilots to practice identifying prominent features in the cluttered terrain typical of more populated urban areas.
