Marine Corps Air Station Miramar is a 24,000-acre installation located in the northern suburbs of San Diego and is one of the largest military bases in the area.
During Base Realignment and Closure hearings in 1993, MCAS El Toro was selected for closure, and the Marine flight operations were recommended for transfer to Miramar. Marine Corps Air Stations El Toro and Tustin were closed, and their assets moved to Miramar by the end of 1999. Subsequently, Miramar was reassigned from a Naval Air Station (USN) to a Marine Corps Air Station.
Miramar is home for eight F/A-18C & F/A-18D Hornet jet squadrons, and four CH-46 Sea Knight helicopter squadrons, four CH-53E Super Stallion helicopter squadrons, and one KC-130 transport and refueling squadron. (All currently deployed to the Persian Gulf area)
Formerly, as a Master Jet Air Station NAS Miramar, nine F-14 Tomcat squadrons were stationed here and trained to carry out their missions. Advanced training was also provided at the Navy Fighter Weapons School ("TOPGUN") for experienced fighter aircrews. All three Carrier Air Wings, CVW-11, CVW-14 & CVW-2, relocated to NAS Lemoore. The Navy Fighter Weapons School relocated to NAS Fallon. NAS Miramar was also home to four E-2C Hawkeye airborne early warning squadrons, which provide operational support for aircraft carriers. These are now based at Pt. Mugu.
