The Point Mugu Air Show will return this fall for the first time since a fatal air crash in 2002.
This year's event, scheduled for Sept. 10-12 at Naval Base Ventura County, will not feature a big-name aerobatic act, such as the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels, because of scheduling conflicts, officials said.
It will feature several types of military aircraft, including the F-14 Tomcat fighter jets and the E-2C Hawkeye radar plane, officials said. There also will be civilian aviators and displays of vintage aircraft. Admission for the event is free.
Teri Reid, spokeswoman for the base, said she wasn't sure why the county didn't make the precision teams' schedules. "We submit two dates, a preferred date and an alternate," she said. "They take all the submissions and put together a schedule, and we just weren't on it."
