Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - The annual Miramar Air Show is underway at MCAS Miramar.

There was already a long line of cars waiting to get in when the gates opened at 8 Friday morning. 

This year’s theme is “100 Years of Women in the Marine Corps.”

Since World War I women have served in the Marine Corps contributing to the US victory of multiple wars, battles, and conflicts. This year is a chance to recognize the accomplishments of women marines.

Each day of the air show will open with civilian performances then move into military demonstrations such as parachute teams, like the Navy Leap Frogs and U.S. Army Golden Knights.

The Blue Angels are the show’s headliners and will be the closing performance each day.

According to the Marines, last year more than half a million people attended the air show over its three days, with Saturday being the busiest day.

The MCAS Miramar Air Show will run through Sunday. 

General admission is free, grandstand and box seats are available for purchase on the air show’s website.

Gates open daily at 8:00 a.m.
