THOUSANDS THRILL AT MIRAMAR AIR SHOW

Miramar USMC Air Station -- Both in the air and on-the-ground, the 2008 Miramar Air Show is spectacular!
Some of the world's best military and civilian pilots are soaring through the skies above San Diego today - Oct. 4th - and tomorrow.
On the ground, there is over a mile of static displays from old warbirds to the newest, technology of stealth fighter jets - and the public gets to go inside these parked aircraft.
One of the most dramatic aircraft is a HUGE jet AWACS radar surveillance plane with the letters NATO on its side.
It's commanded by Vaj Parys, commandant of the Belgian Air Force. It can operate airborne for 16-hours and has a massive radar antennae on top of the plane.
Headlining the air show is the famous Navy Blue Angels, who have been performing since 1946 before over 427 million people.
Admission and parking are free!
The air show runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.. Gates open at 8 a.m. Traffic in the area is really tough, so leave very early.
