Three times Best Military Air Show award winner from the International Council of Air Shows (ICAS), the MCAS Miramar Air Show is back again this year. And it promises to be even better this time. With the buzz that has already been made regarding the major attractions of the upcoming MCAS Miramar Air Show, booking for tickets and passes has begun in full swing. Air show enthusiasts have started hunting for a good and affordable San Diego accommodation to stay in during that time and booking their rooms in advance to beat the last minute rush.
What attracts aviation aficionados to the MCAS Miramar Air Show from all across the world is the magnificent display of various types of aircraft at one place. Right from former biplanes to the latest technology of stealth fighter jets, you get to witness a lot here. And how can one forget about the Marine Air and Ground Task Force (MAGTF) who use this platform for combat demonstration of their skills.
The MCAS Miramar air show will take place from the 2nd to the 4th of October. With theme “A Salute to Teamwork”, this year the air show is dedicated to people who are the heart and soul of Marine Aviation and the inventory of aircraft they fly and maintain.
More than 200 hands-on static display exhibits at the show will focus on the civilian and military aviation technology. The other main attraction of the show is the special Twilight Show featuring the Great Wall of Fire and a Fireworks Grand Finale. More than 100 aircraft are on the ground and open for exploration for the general public. But the real excitement will be high above in the sky when the top-of-the-line military aircraft will hold the crowds spellbound with their great movements and supersonic flybys.
This year the excitement is very high as for the first time the Canadian military Jet Demonstration Team, Snowbirds will be performing here with the world-famous U. S. Navy Blue Angels. The other flying teams who will be ruling the sky with their thrilling performances are the Patriots Jet Demonstration Team, the Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF) demo, the Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier, Air Force F-16 and the Navy’s F-18 E/F Super Hornet!
