The air show at Miramar is held over three days of which the
Friday was officially for military personnel, but it was no problem
to get onto the base. The flying display is not good for photography
as the sun is on the wrong side most of the time. The large
numbers of helicopters were easy to see, but more difficult to
log due to the way they were parked, folded tails, etc. Special
thanks to Mark Forest for his report on this area.
