Yes in 1995, good show with a large static back then, access to the maintenance depot in the morning with various airframes in states of repair and QF-4 conversions going on. Flying display started with sun slightly in front early morning but had moved behind you as the day went on, excellent Marines air ground tactical demo, with all types in the air culminating in the KC-130 hooked up to AV-8B and EA-6B with F-18s in formation.

I'd recommend it if you're in the area. :up:

It's certainly worth your while if you're in the area. I've never been disappointed by a show at a Marine base (weather notwithstanding). The MAGTF alone is worth attending for, and this year already has a pretty solid looking lineup, especially if they're serious about putting that Mohawk up!

If I recall correctly, you park on a remote section of the airfield and they bus you to the static display and crowd line areas. If you arrive early enough, you'll be whisked across within minutes of parking.
