Beside some civil and preserved aircraft this was pretty much everything what was present at the base during this great show. Contrary to Oceana there was a relaxed atmosphere and a great static display.
A number of CH-46s and CH-53s were seen at a relief landing ground near Oceanside, probably escaping the show.
More aircraft were deployed to Yuma for the WTI exercise and a few others including some VMFA-323 Hornets and VMM-161 MV-22s were seen
at North Island during the show weekend but their identities remain unknown. #= Cona special c/s
