The final version of Wilmington's NBC station recorded off the cable while vacationing at Topsail Island NC. Clip begins with a promo for an upcoming Inside Edition, followed by a PSA featuring Wilmington native Michael Jordan. Fans of the 1966-71 ABC soap opera Dark Shadows will recognize Kathryn Leigh-Scott (Josette, Maggie Evans) in the Inside Edition promo.The SSB film after the sign-off is that of the U.S. Navy's Blue Eagles Flight Demonstration Squadron. This is perhaps one of the first sign-offs the Webmaster remembers seeing where the TV station advertises its web site. This version of the WECT sign-off ran from 1995 until 2002, when Channel 6 finally went 24-7-365.
