We are pleased to have you as our guests at the MCAS Beaufort Air Show and will do everything we can to ensure that your experience is safe and enjoyable. We ask for your cooperation in keeping potentially dangerous items safely outside the flightline gates.

At the entry points to the MCAS Beaufort Airshow flightline, ALL bags will be quickly inspected to ensure everyone’s safety and all individuals are subject to search. We recommend you keep the number and size of permitted items to a minimum to reduce the inspection time prior to access into the flightline area.
