Miramar Air Show
Posted by George J Janczyn on October 3, 2009
The Miramar Air Show opened Friday. The afternoon sky was perfect: clouds drifted in from Tropical Depression OLAF in the Eastern Pacific off Baja but the ceiling was high and the viewing was good and we were shielded from the hot sun.
The show included a Russian MiG-17F, the red “Oracle Challenger,” an F-16 Fighting Falcon, the Patriots L-39 4-ship jet team, an AV-8B Harrier vertical landing and takeoff demo, and the Navy Blue Angels F/A-18 Hornets.
