Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

Marine Corps Air Station Miramar

San Diego, CA 92145

Once the home of the legendary Fighter Weapons School popularized by the movie "Top Gun," Marine Crops Air Station now houses the Marine Corps flight school and is home to the Marine "Flying Leathernecks" and 100 F/A-18 Hornets. Several proponents made a push in recent years to move the San Diego International Airport to Miramar and to block the coming of the Marine Corps helicopters, but these proponents did not win over the federal government. Once the home of NASA's missile tests, Miramar sits on land that is worth more than $96 million, much of it ecologically sensitive.
