Probably one of the last time the AV-8B performed at MCAS Iwakuni

Posted in Marines on May 6th, 2016 Be the first to comment

A AV-8B from VMA-214 performed during the MCAS Iwakuni Friendship Day 2016 Air Show on May 5. That was probably the last time the Harrier flew a flight demonstration at the air show as the U.S. Marine Corps is rotating the Harrier with the F-35B next year.

Since 1973, MCAS Iwakuni has conducted a single-day air show and open house specifically designed to foster positive relationships between the air station and our Japanese hosts, and the event traditionally draws more than 200,000 visitors and participants. This year is the 40th Friendship Day, offering a culturally enriching experience that displays the mutual support that the U.S. and Japan share. This annual event showcases a variety of static displays, aviation performances and demonstrations, and provides food and entertainment for guests of the largest single-day event in Iwakuni.
