Keep Your Eyes on the Sky this September

California Capital Airshow announces exciting 2012 performer and aircraft line up

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – (June 13, 2012) – The United States Air Force Thunderbirds Jet Demonstration Team will rock the skies of Sacramento headlining the California Capital Airshow (CCA) this September 8th and 9th at Mather Airport.  Fans will be captivated by an array of equally exciting, thrill-seeking military jets, gravity-defying aerobatic performers and the rumble of historic aircraft that will make children of all ages scream with excitement.

“This year’s Airshow will have you on your feet begging for more!  The Thunderbirds performance is precision flying at its best, but the show certainly doesn’t stop there,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow.  “No matter what aircraft is screaming through the skies over Mather Airport, it is always thrilling, but more importantly, it’s something you actually get to experience – you get to see the aircraft, explore the planes both inside and out, and personally talk to the actual pilot or crew member of the airplane that literally just took your breath away.”

In addition to the Thunderbirds, CCA will showcase thrilling jets, world-renowned aerobatic performers, and warbirds and vintage aircraft that will mesmerize and inspire both young and old to dream big.  Performers include (but not limited to):

  • USAF Heritage Flight – F-16 Falcon and P-38 Lightning
  • Sean D. Tucker – Team Oracle
  • Tim Weber – Geico Aerobatics
  • Kent Pietsch – Jelly Belly Barnstorming
  • Bill Braack – USO Smoke N’ Thunder Jet Car
  • Eddie Andrieni Mustang Superbatics
  • West Coast RaVens 16 Ship Formation Team
  •  F4U Corsair Aerobatics
  • Red Stars Precision Warbird Team
  • And, literally ‘tons’ of military jets including assets from Travis and Beale AFBs
“Airshow fans will enjoy an action packed weekend both on the ground and in the air.  Every gravity-defying maneuver, fly-over and aerobatic performance will impress you, enchant you, and leave you speechless. It’s going to be an incredible show!” continued Brewer.
