    The Miramar Air Show: A Tradition

    Hundreds of thousands of people will descend on MCAS Miramar this weekend for the annual Miramar air show.

    On Saturday, The Blue Angels, the Navy's precision flying team, will perform for the second year in a row with the Canadian Snowbirds.

    This year the Miramar Air Show is celebrating "Marines: A Tradition of Uncommon Valor."

    A special four-hour twilight show starts at 5:30 p.m. and includes a spectacular fireworks display.

    The air show has more than 100 military and civilian display aircraft on hand for everyone to enjoy. This year you can see the new and improved Osprey, the aircraft that takes off and lands like a helicopter and flies like a plane.

    Parking, general admission and blanket seating is free. Gates open at 8 a.m. daily. The show closes on Sunday.
