October 3, 2013 --
It is with sincere regret that we announce the cancellation of the Miramar Air Show in San Diego, Calif. The shutdown of the U.S. government has necessitated this decision by the United States Marine Corps and we apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has on our sponsors and the local San Diego Community.
Guidance from the Deputy Secretary of Defense mandates that non-excepted activities, including outreach events, are not authorized under the current shutdown guidelines. We want to thank everyone involved in the air show for their hard work, dedication and patience during such a period of fiscal duress and we look forward to this annual event to take place next year.
There will be a press conference at 8:30 a.m.
Miramar Public Affairs personnel will rendezvous with all media organizations at 8:20 a.m. at the East Gate to Miramar.
For questions regarding the air show, please contact Miramar Public Affairs at 858-577-6000.
