Don’t miss Flying Leathernecks vintage aircraft at the MCAS Miramar Air Show. (The Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum will be closed September 23-25, 2016, Friday – Sunday, during the Show.) Our A-4M Skyhawk II -- "The Easter Egg" -- will be just one of the aircraft from the Museum's historic collection on display.
Beginning in September, visitors to the museum will see our Marine airplane and helicopter displays being prepared for moving to the Air Show. For example, our crew will be folding the rotors of the CH-46 “Lady Ace” helicopter. Come and see how ground crews were able to make more room on an aircraft carrier by making each aircraft take up less space.
For those attending the Air Show (admission is FREE), you’ll be able to take photos of you and your family with our legendary aircraft on the flight line, including:
- A-6E Intruder
- RF-4B Phantom II
- EA-6B Prowler
- A-4C Skyhawk and A-4M Skyhawk II
- CH-46 Sea Night
- UH-34 Seahorse
- SBD-1 Dauntless
- HOK helicopter
Our display areas at the Air Show include the Expo Hanger, the Chalet, and the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.
General Jimmy Doolittle once commented, “There’s nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer.” This certainly describes the quality of the volunteer team at the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum. Stop by one of our display areas at the Show and say hello to our docents.
