I live in Virginia Beach about .7 mile from the approach end of Runway 23R at NAS Oceana. About every other day for the past month, between 1530 and 1600, a single F/A-18 has been doing stunts over the airfield i.e. rolls, loops, high speed passes, etc. Basically it is a one airplane air show. There is no organized air show coming up at Oceana in the near future that I am aware of. In fact as I am typing this, an F/A-18 just did a high speed low pass over my house. I'm curious to know why this takes place and why it takes place so often?
