Miramar Air Show – 2014


Looking for something fun for the family this weekend? Head down to Miramar and check out the Blue Angels and chat with real Navy Air Pilots!

One of the highlights of this year’s air show is the Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration. During this demonstration, many of the techniques and technologies used by Marines around the world will be on display. Among these technologies are the Marine Corps’ newest airframes, the “MV-22 Osprey” and the F/A-35B “Lightning II.”   For the first time ever, both aircraft will be on display.

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy exciting aerial performances from all of these talented aviators demonstrating their incredible flying abilities. Also, the MCAS Miramar flight line will feature static displays of military equipment from past and present.


Since the show takes place at a real active air station, you can talk to the Marines and Sailors who are here to support the show. Many of whom have deployed numerous times to secure peace throughout the world. Visitors are encouraged to talk with the Marines and Sailors of 3d Marine Aircraft Wing and MCAS Miramar, they represent America’s best and brightest.
