Welcome to Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, home of the 3d Marine Aircraft Wing, and the largest military air show in the nation.
The theme for the 2015 MCAS Miramar Air Show, which runs October 2-4 2015, is "A Salute to Veterans and Their Families." We take great pride in the men and women who fight our country's battles and the families who support them. A significant number of those veterans and their families are stationed right here on MCAS Miramar or live in and around San Diego. Whether at home or deployed, their mission remains the same: protect our nation and those we love. Our service members, past and present, have continuously answered the call to serve. They selflessly do it for America, our values, and our way of life, often at the cost of leaving their family members behind. While this year's air show is a salute to all veterans and their families, we want to convey a special, heartfelt thank you to our wounded warriors, military families, and veterans of past conflicts.
We are pleased to welcome back the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and the Patriots Jet Team for what are sure to be thrilling performances of fast-paced formation flying and choreographed aerobatic maneuvers. This year, we are also thrilled to welcome the Breitling Jet Team for their first U.S. tour. Additionally, MCAS Miramar is honored to host an amazing lineup of civilian performers including Sean Tucker's "Oracle Challenger," John Collver's "Wardog," Chuck Aaron's Red Bull Helicopter, and the Shockwave Jet Truck.
Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy exciting performances from military parachute teams and aerial demonstrations by the F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter, the AV-8B Harrier, the MV-22B Osprey, the U.S. Army Golden Knights, the U.S. Navy Leap Frogs, and an intense Marine Air Ground Task Force demonstration. The MCAS Miramar flight line will also feature static displays, including past and present aircraft and ground combat equipment, air show memorabilia, and plenty of vendors and activities for families to enjoy.
Please take time to talk to the Marines, Sailors, Soldiers, Airmen, and Coast Guardsmen who will be here to support the show. Many of the young men and women you will meet have deployed numerous times. Take a moment to thank these men and women who give so much to preserve the freedoms we enjoy every day. They are true American heroes.
MCAS Miramar has a long, rich history with the citizens of San Diego. We value this relationship and consider it an honor to serve and protect the citizens of the United States. On behalf of MCAS Miramar's 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 you for all you do for us. We are honored to share this incredible experience with you and truly hope you enjoy the 2015 MCAS Miramar Air Show.
