Veterans group aims to shut down the Miramar Air Show

Share

The San Diego Veterans For Peace, Chapter 91, has embarked on a five-year plan to change public understanding of what the Miramar Air Show is actually all about. Here’s a short list. The Miramar Air Show:

  • Glorifies war with an exciting and colorful show of speed, power and noise.
  • Celebrates the skills and machinery that exist to kill, maim and destroy.
  • Misuses taxpayer’s money for entertainment and defense industry marketing and sales.
  • Is dangerous – 10% of Blue Angel’s pilots have been killed in accidents. Miramar jets have already crashed in San Diego neighborhoods.
  • Serves as a misleading recruiting tool for our unsuspecting youth.
