Mira Mesa is a community and neighborhood in the city of San Diego, California. Around the time of World War II the area now called Mira Mesa was used by the United States Army as a test area.Since its inception, Mira Mesa was largely influenced by the military located at the adjacent NAS Miramar. Mira Mesa was the northernmost “real community” of San Diego, and was separated from the rest of the city by NAS Miramar for many years. For nearly 30 years the Navy’s Top Gun School was located here, and most of the pilots made their homes in Mira Mesa.
