Q: What’s going on at MCAS Miramar?

A: We don’t know … exactly … but we know there is a lot of aircraft activity. From Facebook @3rdMAW on January 15, 2020 – More than 25 aircraft are taking off daily as part of Winter Fury, an exercise designed to prepare pilots and air crews for the Marine Corps’ premier formal aviation school, Weapons and Tactics Instructor Course. 3rd MAW Marines honed their skills and increased their proficiency across the six functions of Marine Aviation, while simultaneously training with their Navy and Air Force counterparts.

West Coast Basing of F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter squadrons is expected at MCAS Miramar in 2020. Hanger construction and other preparations are well underway. The F35 will replace the F/A-18 Hornet at Miramar.
