3rd Marine Aircraft Wing

3rd Marine Aircraft Wing

San Diego, California is located on the West Coast of the United States and home to the headquarters of 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (3rd MAW) at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Miramar. Formerly a Naval Air Station (NAS), Miramar is probably the most famous NAS in the world after shooting to fame in 1986 with the release of “Top Gun”. Both Miramar and the United States Navy (USN) pilots of the Top Gun fighter school featured heavily in the hit film staring Tom Cruise. Previously known as “Fightertown USA”, today Miramar is under the command of the United States Marines Corps (USMC) with the USN departing in the late 1990s.
