The Patriots Jet Team
The Patriots L-39s have electrified spectators
with fast-paced formation flying and their signature "Tail Slide" maneuver where the aircraft actually slides
backwards toward the ground, something you will not see from any other jet demonstration team.
A Tribute to Bob Hoover
Bob Hoover is considered one of the founding fathers of modern aerobatics and was named the third greatest
aviator in history.
Sean Tucker "Oracle Challenger"
Sean Tucker has flown more than 700 performances at more than 300 air shows, in front of more than 60 million fans.
Sean has logged over 20,000 hours flying. In 2003, he was named one of the 25 "Living Legends of Flight" by the
Smithsonian Air & Space Museum.
John Collver "Wardog"
John A. Collver and his AT-6 "War Dog" are a crowd-pleasing favorite seen by millions of people at Air Shows every
year. Collver uses the World War II-era AT-6 trainer to show off the aerial maneuvers taught to dogfighting
American pilots more than 60 years ago.
Bret Willat "Sailplane Magic"
Bret Willat flies "Sailplane Magic," based in Southern California. If you think all a sailplane can do is big
lazy circles, wait till you see Bret add some loops and rolls (with smoke). The show is set to music.
Dan flies some of the quieter aircraft on the air show circuit, with a smooth, silent tow-launched hang
glider and also a quiet, agile motorized wing for remote performances that are not near airports.
The Hawker Beechcraft Defense Company is proud to bring you the Texan II Demo, Piloted by Michael Rambo.
A smoke-on aerobatic demonstration showcasing the most cost-effective military training system available.
ShockWave Jet Truck
The ShockWave Jet Truck runs over 300 mph, racing airplanes at airshows. The Jet Truck holds the world record in a quarter mile
for trucks at 256 mph in just 6.36 seconds; and holds the world record for full size trucks at 376 mph as recorded
by Guinness Book of World Records.
The Miramar RC Flyers will fly their radio controlled aircraft from 10:00-11:00 a.m. each day of the air show.
Red Bull Helo
Many people are surprised to learn that Red Bull's high performance aerobatic routine is actually performed by
a stock helicopter.
Musical Performers & Shows
American Hitmen - literally formed on the battlefield in Fallujah, Iraq, during Operation Phantom Fury in 2004.
Dan and Tim Cord, Ben Porterfield, and Dan “Jay” Jarmon were all serving in the U.S. Marine Corps.
When they returned home, the 4 Marines used their musical talent to form San Diego’s hottest new rock band.
Royal Bliss - The wide variety of influences from Johnny Cash to Snoop Dogg
to Led Zeppelin and the Foo Fighters with everything in between have melded a sound that cannot be denied. Royal
Bliss on January 24th 2012 independently released their highly anticipated
"Waiting Out The Storm" and cracked the top 10 on the iTunes Rock Charts.
Sawyer Brown -
Founded in 1981, the band celebrates its 30th anniversary
this year, having played more than 4000 shows over the course of those years, logging mileage well into the seven
Legal Drag Races on the Flight Line
Bring your own car and race it down Miramar's Flight Line. The safer and sanctioned track alternative to illegal street racing was developed with one goal
in mind and that is to save the needless loss of young lives to an illegal street race gone bad.
Saturday, October 5, 2013 Finale
The Twilight Air Show ends with a spectacular fireworks display produced by San Diego Fireworks.
Great Wall of Fire
The Miramar Air Show Great Wall of Fire made the "Guinness Book of World Records" in 2000 for
"Longest Wall of Fire." At 2,500 feet, it's an incredible inferno and you will feel the heat.
