2012 MCAS Miramar and NATO Days reviews

  MCAS Miramar in San Diego, CA, held its annual Air Show October 12-14, 2012, featuring two jet demonstration teams, full tactical demonstrations from the F/A-18 Super Hornet, AV-8B Harrier II, MV-22 Osprey and the F-22A Raptor, warbirds, several civilian aerobatic performers, multiple parachute teams, and the Marine Air-Ground Task Force assault demonstration (MAGTF). Seven hours of flying each day, a night show on Saturday, and almost a mile of tarmac filled with aircraft on static display made for a very long and busy weekend. This show does not disappoint, which is why well over half a million visitors attend the air show every year. Read the full review here
The NATO-Days 2012, is the largest army-air-military show in Central Europe, held in Ostrava at the Leoš Janáček Ostrava Airport, in the Czech Republic that featured several demo teams from Europe.
The Polish Su-22 Fitter demo team is a most welcomed addition to the European Air Show scene. For the first time outside of France, the French Air Force tactical demo team RAMEX-DELTA with (2) Mirage 2000 N, showed their high level of flying and aerobatic skills in a very impressive display. In two ship formation they simulated ground attacks and air surveillance.
