I saw a V22 yesterday over the old El Toro MCAS(rip) do you know anything about that movement? Maybe 29 palms from Miramar MCAS?

@Gavrilo… MAXSez: Your MILcom article sez it all. Attempted to down load but no joy.
MCAS Miramar replaced El Toro for West Coast Marine aviation years ago.
The station supports 29 Stump and Pendleton joint arms/MAGTF training and deployments.
