It's time for one of the best family events of the year in San Diego. The Miramar Airshow is a must see:
US Navy Blue AngelsThe U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Blue Angels, has been the indisputable “star of the show” since the 1940s. Flying F/A-18 Hornets painted in Navy Blue and Gold since 1986, these masters of the sky have demonstrated aerial excellence in the Navy’s top piston and jet aircraft.

Hornets and Harriers provide cover for Marine Corps paratroopers as helicopters bring in platoons of riflemen. C-130′s provide aerial re-fueling overhead while M1-A1 tanks and LAV’s support the ground offensive. Spectacular special effects simulate air-to-ground explosions.

They consist of an all-volunteer team of active-duty personnel drawn from Naval Special Warfare (NSW), including Navy SEALs, Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewmen (SWCC) and support personnel. The team is sanctioned by the Department of Defense and recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration.U.S. Army Golden KnightsCutting away a parachute on purpose. Passing a baton at 120 mph. Flying the American flag at 12,000 feet. Landing dead center on the target. The Golden Knights have been holding audiences in the palm of their hands all over the world with their feats of aerial acrobatics. Now in their 53rd year of entertaining both young and old with their amazing aerial skills, the men and women of the Golden Knights continue to show why they are considered the world’s best parachute team.

F-35B aircraft have been delivered to the U.S. Marines and the U.K.https://www.f35.com/global/participation/united-kingdom, whose forces are training together at the Integrated Training Center at Eglin Air Force Base https://www.f35.com/about/who-is-flying/eglin.

It is designed to combine the functionality of a conventional helicopter with the long-range, high speed cruise performance of a turboprop aircraft.
The Patriots JetAfter painstaking restoration by the Air shows America team, The Patriots’ six L-39 jets were modified for use on the air show circuit with upgraded avionics systems for navigation and communications, removal of excess weight for better air show performance, addition of a 25 gallon smoke oil system, and removal of their previous paint scheme. Sponsored by Fry’s Electronics and Hot Line Construction, the Patriots L-39s have electrified spectators with fast-paced formation flying and their signature “Tail Slide” maneuver where the aircraft actually slides backwards toward the ground, something you will not see from any other jet demonstration team.

Tucker “Oracle Challenger”Since beginning his air show career in the mid-70s, Sean Tucker has flown more than 700 performances at more than 300 air shows, in front of more than 60 million fans. In the upcoming season alone, Tucker and Team Oracle will entertain nearly 10 million fans at 25 shows throughout North America. “I like to think that I bring the fans’ dreams of flying into the plane with me, and there’s nowhere I’d rather be than in the cockpit. That’s why I train so hard to keep the edge!” Sean has logged over 20,000 hours flying, which if done all at once, would take over two years, 24 hours a day. In 2003, he was named one of the 25 “Living Legends of Flight” by the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. View the video. (Photo courtesy of Team Oracle)John Collver “Wardog”John A. Collver and his AT-6 “War Dog” are a crowd-pleasing favorite seen by millions of people at Air Shows every year. Collver, who has logged thousands of hours of airtime in more than 50 types of aircraft over 30-plus years of flying, uses the World War II-era AT-6 trainer to show off the aerial maneuvers taught to dogfighting American pilots more than 60 years ago.(Photo courtesy of Bernard Zee)Steve Stavrakakis “A Tribute to the American Vet”With nearly 20 years of experience as a professional air show pilot and narrator, Steve Stavrakakis is considered a proven entertainment package. Stavrakakis flies his “Tribute to Veterans” in the aerobatic IAR-823 built by Industria Aeronatica Romania, powered by a 300-hp Lycoming and spinning a Hartzell propeller. The IAR is painted in Air Force jungle camouflage colors and the markings of the 8th Special Ops Squadron stationed at Bien Hoa Air Base, Vietnam in 1970.

If you think all a sailplane can do is big lazy circles, wait till you see Bret add some loops and rolls (with smoke). The show is set to music. (Photo courtesy of Bret Willat)OTTO the HelicopterOTTO The Helicopter is one of the most unique and versatile air show acts in the world. OTTO provides air show fans the best entertainment value in the industry. During OTTO’s daytime comedy show he entertains the crowds by blowing bubbles, playing with his yo-yo, racing around barrels and picking them up, shooting smoke in all directions, towing banners, and more all while interacting with the announcer! His night show is one of the best in the air show industry with dynamic fireworks and pyrotechnics that will wow the crowd on Saturday night.Shockwave Jet TruckThe Shockwave Jet Truck runs over 300 mph, racing airplanes at air shows; it holds the world record in a quarter mile for trucks at 256 mph in just 6.36 seconds; and holds the world record for full size trucks at 376 mph as recorded by Guinness Book of World Records. At 36,000 horsepower, the ShockWave has enough power to accelerate at three G’s vertical, which is as much as the space shuttle! (Photo courtesy of Darnell Racing Enterprises)Red Bull HeloMany people are surprised to learn that Red Bull’s high performance aerobatic routine is actually performed by a stock helicopter, the BO-105 CBS made by Eurocopter/Messerschmitt Boelkow Blohm (MBB). It uses two 425 hp Allyson Rolls Royce C-20B turbine engines that drive composite rotor blades mounted to a solid titanium fixed rotor head. The normal versions can be configured for a variety of flight operations from air ambulance to off shore oil drilling support. What makes Red Bull’s BO-105 CBS different from any of the others is the man inside - Charles “Chuck” P. Aaron.
