CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

The State of North Carolina owns 47 aircraft.  Planes and helicopters are used to shuttle government leaders around the state.

Eyewitness News anchor Blair Miller went through years of flight logs to see how those aircraft have been used.

In some cases, very rarely, even though they cost millions of dollars to own and maintain.

Miller is taking what Channel 9 found to state leaders and one lawmaker is now ready to take action because of our investigation. See the full report Wednesday at 5 p.m. on Eyewitness News.
