2009 MCAS Miramar Airshow Videos


Throughout most of the videos, you will see two things that will hinder the quality of the video.
I had some camera trouble over the weekend, and you will see videos that have thin to think color bars
that affect the quality as well as some odd colors that I can't seem to explain. In addition, you will see
American flags that block my view out to the left and right, which I had no control over. For all of those
reasons, I apologize in advance. However, please enjoy all of the videos I have to offer from MCAS Miramar.
