California Capital Airshow Announces Stellar 2013 Performer Line Up

Showcasing one of the most entertaining Airshows in the nation this year

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – April 25, 2013 - The California Capital Airshow (CCA) today announced a robust and varied performer’s roster and will host five plus hours of thrills, chills and jaw-dropping excitement. The Show, October 5-6, 2013, at Mather Airport, will feature spine-tingling performances including headliner, the Royal Canadian Air Force Jet Demonstration Team, known as the Snowbirds, thrilling demonstrations, world-class aerobatics, wingsuit flyers, barnstorming, wing walking, World War II aircraft and endless entertainment and displays along the ramp.

Nearly all of this high-flying action hasn’t been seen in the Sacramento region…ever! Such acts including the Snowbirds, The Horsemen, flying three F-86 Sabre Jets, five time national aerobatic champion, Kirby Chambliss, the Red Bull Air Force wing suit flyers, Franklin’s Flying Circus Dracula and the Rise of Vacul, Greg Shelton and Ashley Battles barnstorming and wing walking act, and the Indy Boys. Additionally, CCA is excited for the return of aerobatic daredevils, Michael Goulian and John Klatt Airshows.

“We are proud to be one of the few shows in the nation this year with a military jet demonstration team,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow. “We have a stellar line up planned, non-stop action, and more interactive activities than ever before, specifically for teens and young children. Once inside the Airshow gates, the young and the young-at-heart can come alive with imagination and possibilities. A day at the Airshow could literally change a young persons’ view of their education and inspire them to look beyond the horizon and know that they too can be a part of history in their own way.”

The CCA will be all things “shiny, fast and loud” for all ages and so much more! Tickets are now available online and can be easily purchased at the Airshow web site.

The CCA web site will be updated regularly with news, attraction information and more. Fans can follow the Airshow on Facebook and Twitter (#calcapairshow).
