MCAS Miramar - Photos Coming Soon

In October 2015 I visited San Diego to attend the MCAS Miramar 2015 air show (Photos Coming Soon)

MCAS (Marine Corps Air Station) Miramar is home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW) and each year they host the worlds largest military air show. The shows theme was “A Salute to Veterans and Their Families” and featured the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, Patriots Jet Team , aerial demonstrations by the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter and the AV-8B Harrier as well as the very impressive intense Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration - an incredible show of F/A 18 Hornets, Harriers, Cobra, Osprey, C130, Stallions, Chinooks and of course the Marine Corps troops and vehicles.

MCAS Miramar has a long, rich history and was formerly home of the Pacific Fleet fighter and Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft (F-4 Phantom II, F-14 Tomcat and E-2 Hawkeye). It is also known as the former location of the United States Navy Fighter Weapons School (NFWS) "TOPGUN" and the film Topgun - the station was nicknamed "Fightertown USA"
