Something Much Louder and Faster than a Sleigh with Reindeer will Thunder Over the Skies of Sacramento in 2012

California Capital Airshow offers a different kind of magic this September at Mather Airport

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – (December 20, 2011) – Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than locomotives, able to soar beyond our airspace in mere seconds -- the superheroes of the United States Air Force Thunderbirds Jet Demonstration Team will thunder into Sacramento headlining the 2012 California Capital Airshow (CCA). Airshow organizers announced today that the Thunderbirds along with an exciting array of thrilling jets, world-renowned aerobatic performers, and historic aircraft will captivate the crowds and inspire both young and old to dream big this September 8-9 at Mather Airport.

“The Thunderbirds are more than just the colorful Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcons you see in pictures and video,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow. “Attendees will be fascinated by the members of the team; they are devoted to integrity, unselfish service and excellence in all efforts -- a standard that young people should aspire to in any career or path they choose.”

As the Thunderbirds enter their 59th season, they are proud to share their history, mission and message with thrill-seeking fans of all ages. These representatives of the most advanced and respected air, space and cyberspace force will be on the ramp to sign autographs throughout each day of the Airshow weekend.

“Both on the ground and in the air for every gravity-defying maneuver, the Thunderbirds will impress you, enchant you, and leave you breathless. Don’t miss a chance to see these superheroes perform and the opportunity to meet them in person,” continued Brewer.

“It is not only an honor, but a privilege to spend the weekend at the Airshow with these remarkable and accomplished men and women,” said Congressman Dan Lungren. “An aviation event of this caliber educates and inspires our young people. America’s Ambassadors in Blue bring more than thrills and entertainment; they highlight our nation’s innovation and ingenuity while showcasing true gratitude for all military personnel both past and present.”
