MCAS Miramar is home to the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing of the United States Marine Corps, known as “America’s 9-1-1 Force.” Miramar’s aircraft and aviators are currently serving in Operations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom, as well as other places around the globe. The Marines of 3d MAW, successfully perform a wide variety of combat and support missions in F/A-18 Hornet fighter attack jets, CH-46 Sea Knight and CH-53E Super Stallion helicopters and the KC-130 Hercules transport and aerial refueling aircraft.
You can view all these combat-tested aircraft as part of your tour of the flight line. As part of our effort to educate the public on the strategic value of MCAS Miramar, Marines from our Public Affairs Office will introduce you to Marine Corps aviators and support personnel.
Groups can boost their visit experience with world-class catering. The MCAS Miramar Semper Fi Special Events office can ensure your group is well-taken care of, in settings including the world-famous Miramar Officers' Club (where scenes from the movie "Top Gun" were filmed), the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum and actual aircraft hangars (depending on group size and availability) located directly on the flight line.
