SACRAMENTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hold on to your hats! The eighth annual California Capital Airshow (www.californiacapitalairshow.com) will be roaring across the skies of Sacramento, October 5-6, 2013. The Show will feature spine-tingling performances including headliner, the Royal Canadian Air Force Jet Demonstration Team, known as the Snowbirds, thrilling military demonstrations, world-class aerobatics, wingsuit flyers, barnstorming, wing walking, and endless entertainment and displays along the ramp. And the best part? Nearly all of this high-flying action hasn't been seen in the Sacramento region…ever!
“Nearly all of the high-flying action hasn’t been seen in Sacramento; there’s going to be several new faces and performances to ‘ooh and ahh’ over; it’s going to be a fantastic show!”
“Sacramento is in for a rare treat this year. The Snowbirds fly a nine ship formation and fans will be captivated with the graceful yet heart-pounding aerial demonstration,” said Darcy Brewer, executive director of the California Capital Airshow. “Serving as Canadian ambassadors, the Snowbirds demonstrate the high level of professionalism, teamwork, excellence, discipline and dedication inherent in the women and men of the Royal Canadian Air Force and the Canadian Forces. Since they are an international jet team, their travels to the US can be limited – you won’t want to miss this performance. They may not be back for years.”
The Snowbirds’ pilots and aircraft technicians spend the winter months at their home base in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, acquiring and practicing the skills necessary to perform in very demanding positions.
The Snowbirds’ show is the result of six months of intensive preparation and training and consists of over fifty different formations and maneuvers. To see some of the formations such as the Arrowhead, Big Diamond, Canada Goose and so many more, please visit http://www.rcaf-arc.forces.gc.ca/snowbirds/page-eng.asp?id=1570.
