Early low clouds delayed the scheduled 9 a.m. begin by an hour, however “America’s Air Present” made the wait worthwhile Sunday — the third and closing day of the annual show of navy may and equipment at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

Highlighted as normal by the Navy’s Blue Angels precision flight staff, the present could have drawn greater than the ten,000 stationed on the northern San Diego base.

Crowds considered static shows on the bottom and craned their necks skyward on an ultimately heat and sunny day.

A U-2 Dragon Girl surveillance craft drew eyes in addition to flights by MV-22 Ospreys and the F35-B Lightning and an F-16 Viper. The Marine Air-Floor Activity Pressure carried out a simulated fight assault.

Col. Marty Bedell, Miramar’s commanding officer, knew his mission — declaring he was prepared to enroll any new recruits straight away.
