On 18, 19 & 20 October 2002 the 'Salute to the Flying Leathernecks Airshow' was held once again at MCAS Miramar in San Diego, California. The pictures below show only a small portion of the aircraft which attended. On the saturday and sundaymorning the weather was rather hazy but sundayafternoon turned out to be lots better! A big thank you to Lt Scott, Sgt Carter and other staff at the MCAS Miramar PA Office.
