MCAS Miramar Air Show Promises Blue Angels and Fireworks

‘A Salute to Veterans and Their
Families’ is the theme for the annual MCAS Miramar Air Show, which
‘takes off’ next Friday as part of Fleet Week.
The
show, which is the largest air show in the country and annually brings
in around 700,000 fans, includes the famous formation flying and
acrobatic maneuvers of the Blue Angels and the Patriots Jet Team.

The Army’s Golden Knights and the Navy Leap Frogs parachute teams will also show off their expert skills in the sky.
The
Breitling Jet Team, the largest civilian aerobatic demonstration team
in Europe, will also fly in as part of their first US tour.

Military airplanes will be on the
ground for fans to look at and climb in, the Air Show Expo will feature a
multitude of venders, there will be plenty of memorabilia to take home,
and each night ends in fireworks.
MCAS Miramar has a long air history going back to the Mexican-American war in the mid-19th century.

Charles Lindbergh used the abandoned
Camp Kearny to practice takeoffs and landings in the plane he flew
across the Atlantic in 1927.
In
1969 the Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor Program, more popularly
known as the Top Gun School, was established there as a place to teach
pilots dog-fighting and fleet air defense during the Vietnam War.
