Snowbirds Set to Make Appearance in California

The Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds flight demonstration team will make a welcomed appearance in the United States in October. They will fly at the California Capital Airshow in Sacramento on the weekend of October 5-6.

Due to sequestration, American military demonstration teams, such as the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels, have been unable to perform at events this season. The Snowbirds’ performance in Northern California, along with the trip they made to fly in a Montana air show in May, will be some of the only military performances in American skies this season.

The Snowbirds have had a busy schedule performing all around Canada this summer and make their trip to California at the end of their season.

The California Capital Airshow takes place October 5-6 at Mather Field outside Sacramento.
