Leaving MCAS Miramar and Moving Forward

Yesterday, March 28, 2021, marks a sad day for all of us as we prepare to permanently close the gates of the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum at MCAS Miramar.

After more than 20 years of the base our home, we have lost the fight to keep the museum at its current location. However, our mission continues and we will keep you apprised of our work to relocate the museum.
