California Capital Air Show


A fantastic air show in Sacramento, California.

Aces Flying High

In September 2012 I headed to Sacramento to go to the California Capital Air Show. Held at Mathers Airport each year, the air show attracts big crowds to see a great collection of historical and modern-day aircraft from military, law enforcement, commercial and private operators. I went on the Saturday and the weather was perfect – warm with clear blue skies. Great for flying!

The historical aircraft flying displays include a great line up of classic warbirds such as the Gumman F6F Hellcat, Grumman F8F Bearcat, Lockheed P-38 Lightning (along with a solo display the P-38 “Honey Bunny” was also involved in a race with a jet powered car and flew with an F-16 in the USAF Heritage Flight display), North American P-51D Mustang, Vought F4U Corsair and a Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XIV. Seeing some of the greatest fighter aircraft of World War Two still gracing the skies 70 years later is always a wonderful sight!
