Location: Mather Airport, CA

Next to the Travis Air Show, the California Capital Airshow is located just outside of Sacramento and one not to be missed. This airshow is in its 13th year and features the USAF Thunderbirds and a lot more. It is located just East of Sacramento and right off of Highway 50 so it’s not much further from the Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, CA and they put on a spectacular event. A great Air Show.

SF Bay Area Air Shows
Also don’t forget the Blue Angels at San Francisco Fleet Week.
The Blue Angels are the Navy’s performance team and they fly in F-18 Hornets.
Travis Canceled After Plane Crash
There was a crash and a death during the 2014 show. I was there Saturday but the crash happened on Sunday.
Thunderbirds Air Show
The Thunderbirds air display team flies the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon. Such a beautiful plane.

If the Thunderbird performances weren’t exciting enough, there are going to be static ground airplane displays as always. A lot of these aircraft are big enough to walk though.
Including but not limited to: P-51 Mustang Historic Fighter, C-5 Galaxy Beast, F-16 Fighting Falcon Jet, KC-10 Extender Flying Gas Station, A-10 Thunderbolt II Tank Hunter, B-52 Stratofortress Mega Bomber, C-17 Globemaster III Transport, F-15E Strike Eagle Fighter Jet and more!
You know how bad we all want to be in that seat.
