MCAS Miramar 2019 Air Show: This year’s Miramar Air Show is dedicated to first responders. For decades, the Marine Corps has been “America’s 9-1-1 force” and that idea was built upon the deeds and service of countless men and women in our first responder communities. The 2019 Miramar Air Show gives the public and current service members an opportunity to recognize and honor the contributions and sacrifices of our first responders. The Air Show also provides visitors the opportunity to see Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Army and civilian aircraft spanning 70 years as well as to get a firsthand look at Marine Corps tactical equipment.

While the 2019 Air Show performance dates are Friday to Sunday, September 27-29, military and civilian aircraft are expected to be seen and heard in the skies above University City and surrounding areas from Wednesday, September 25 to Monday, September 30.
