Welcome to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, home of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing and the largest and best military air show in the nation. MCAS Miramar and 3rd MAW have a long, rich history with our neighbors in San Diego and with those from around the nation. We value this relationship and consider it an honor to serve and protect the citizens of the United States.

In appreciation of this relationship, the Miramar Air Show will be held from the 1st to the 3rd of October, honoring the 65th Anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima with our theme, "Marines: A Tradition Of Uncommon Valor."

We are once again pleased to welcome back the world-famous U. S. Navy Blue Angels and again to play host to the renowned Canadian Snowbirds for the second year in a row. These elite, precision flying teams will be taking to the skies over San Diego with other military and civilian aircraft, including the AV-8B Harrier, the F/A-18 Hornet, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, and the Marine Corps Air and Ground Task Force demonstration. We invite you to join us this fall to partake of these amazing aerial performances by both military and civilian aviators, and let them amaze you with their unmatched professional flying skills.

Additionally, the Miramar flight line will be filled with static displays, showcasing both past and present military equipment, air show memorabilia, and plenty of refreshments to keep you cool while you enjoy the inspiring feats and daring aerobatics of our amazing performers. Stop by and explore our military aircraft, or just sit back on the flight line and enjoy the opportunity to talk to the Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen who are there to ensure you have a wonderful experience and enjoy the show. Many of the young service members you will meet have already deployed numerous times to secure peace throughout the world. Their enthusiasm for what they do and their passion for protecting our way of life will impress you.

Finally, in addition to the great people of California, the Miramar Air Show is a salute to the military families who support their loved ones who stand ready and constantly answer the call of duty around the world. Please take a moment to honor these family members who maintain vigilance here at home as their husbands, wives, sons, and daughters routinely deploy to preserve the freedoms we enjoy every day. They are truly American heroes.

On behalf of MCAS Miramar and 3rd MAW Marines and Sailors, we would like to thank San Diego for its unprecedented support of our young men and women in uniform. The Air Show is our way of thanking the residents of this fine city for all that you do for us, and we formally invite you to attend this grand event. We are honored to share this amazing experience and truly hope you enjoy the show.
