California Capital Airshow 2018

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

This morning while swimming laps, I found it pretty amazing to do more time doing backstroke, while watching the world famous USAF Thunderbirds working their magic in the blue skies above. For those interested in aviation marvels, today kicks off the California Capital Air at nearby Mather Air Field.

The California Capital Airshow runs Friday, September 21st, Saturday September 22nd and Sunday September 23rd.

For those in the Greater Sacramento Region, this evening’s performance will celebrate 100 years of Mather Airport, with the “Airshow After Dark” performance!

Gates will open this evening (Friday, September 21st) at 5:00 pm, with flying performances beginning at 6:30 pm.

For more information about the show, performances and tickets, you can visit: https://californiacapitalairshow.com

I saw a video somewhere of the planes flying within inches of each other and barely wavering. I cannot believe my own eyes, Myrl, but I know it is real. Can I see the airshow from standing in my back yard in Land Park?

We just had a great air show here Myrl Jeffcoat at the Minot Air Force Base but there was no place I know of to watch it while doing the backstroke.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - This should be some show at Mather Airport.  Anytime you can get the chance to see the Thunderbirds perform - you should take that opportunity.
