Yuma or El Centro or Miramar - Help please

Post by BDL »

Have one day to spend outside the fence in a couple of weeks time - Question is what base do I sit outside of? Is there anything I should be aware of? Going on a Friday!

Yuma, El Centro or Miramar?

Thanks in advance

(edited as Miramar is nearer to where I am staying that I first thought!!)

Miramar is a bit of a waste of time unless you’re doing the museum which is interesting

Yuma or El Centro. The latter check for deployments.

Or... as a curve ball... March AFB museum is also close by.

Oh and whatever you do don’t park by the fence at either!

El Centro currently has the Blue Angels based there for winter training. Bit early in the season for a display over the airfield though but should still get 2 sorties a day.

if you want pictures, El Centro has the edge and it's a nicer place to sit
