California Capital Airshow takes off

2013 cal cap airshow 100513 827 ec

THE SNOWBIRDS Demonstration Team 431 Squadron is made up of serving members of the Canadian Forces. While they have been in existence since 1942, it wasn’t until July of 1971 that they gave their first public performance. For 2013, their theme is “The pursuit of Excellence,” commemorating two milestones: 70 years as a squadron and 50 years flying the same jet, a Canadian CT-114 Tutor, an advanced jet trainer.

Thrills and no spills marked the 8th two-day California Capital Airshow. And at 10 years old (the initial airshow was in 2004), the show’s Executive Director Darcy Brewer has put together a major national airshow pulling in amazing airplanes and the nation’s top airshow performers like Kirby Chambliss, Mike Goulian and Kyle Franklin, to name a few.
