Commanding Officer's Welcome Message
On behalf of our Marines, Sailors, civilian Marines and their families, welcome to Marine Corps Base Hawaii. MCB Hawaii is proud to present the Kaneohe Bay Air Show. The outstanding collection of performances, demonstrations and displays at this year’s show has the potential to make the Kaneohe Bay Air Show one of the greatest events in Hawaii. Our team has worked tirelessly to put this show together for the community, and we are extremely grateful to you for joining us.
We are excited to once again host the Navy’s world-famous Blue Angels as they celebrate 25 years of performing in the F/A-18 Hornet aircraft. It is very special to host the myriad of professional civilian aerobatic and military demonstrations along with military static displays that will also entertain the crowds this year.
The MCB Hawaii "Kaneohe Bay Air Show” is truly a joint effort from all of our military services. We would like to extend a hearty "thank you" to the Navy, Army, Air Force, Coast Guard and National Guard for their robust support of this event. Today, as members of our armed services dutifully support our freedoms, many of whom are forward deployed around the world, we are grateful and honored. As you enjoy the show, please take a moment to witness first-hand the dedication, integrity and professionalism of your service members.
I thank each of you for your support and hope you will join us at the 2012 "Kaneohe Bay Air Show."
