Show's over, now get to work. Marines and Sailors were breaking down displays before the smoke had even cleared from the Blue Angel's final pass over the crowd.

The Navy demonstration squadron gave the final performance of the 2010 MCAS Miramar Air Show Sunday afternoon.
A crowd of spectators in the tens of thousands packed the Marine Corps base. The grandstands were full and the tarmac was a sea of blankets and lawn chairs.

Souvenir vendors scrambled to keep up with the long lines of customers snapping up t-shirts, hats, and pins. 

Chargers fans who couldn't watch the game at home decided to spend the day checking out the largest Military air show in the country. Announcers kept everyone up to date on the score in between aerial acts

Attendance figures aren't in yet but organizers say the show had an excellent turnout this year.

As spectators made their way home, organizers were already looking ahead to next year.

Normal flight operations were scheduled to resume at MCAS by Noon Monday.
