Miramar Air Show Returns This Weekend For Stunning, Free Aerial Demonstrations

The event is scheduled to be held Sept. 23-25

NBC Universal, Inc.

Aviation enthusiasts, rejoice!

The Miramar Air Show is returning this weekend to put on a stunning display by pilots at MCAS Miramar.

For the first time since the pandemic, the public is invited to the base to enjoy the free show, which is scheduled for Sept. 23-25. Attendants will be treated to a show by the U.S. Navy’s Blue Angels and can also count on seeing demonstrations by the U.S. Marine’s F-35B and the U.S. Air Force’s F-22 Raptor.

NBC 7's Joe Little headed to MCAS Miramar to catch some Blue Angels.

This year’s theme for the event will be “Marines: Fight, Evolve, Win.” Organizers say the title reflects “the Commandant of the Marine Corps Force Design 2030 program and the technical innovations the service is undertaking to remain the 21st century’s force in readiness.”

Those who plan on attending the event should be aware of the following rules:

  • An existing “clear bags only” policy
  • Photo identifications must be shown
  • Ice chests will not be permitted, but exceptions will be made for medically necessary items
  • No pets allowed; service animals with documentation are welcomed
