The United States Air Force Thunderbirds Flight Demonstration Team will headline the California International Airshow at Salinas.

This is a “high energy” aerobatics performance over the skies of Salinas during the Annual Airshow and the first in the Spring time at the Salinas Airport. There will be a full line up of other military and civilian performers along with static displays for families to enjoy. The California International Airshow is one of the best “community based” non -profit air shows in the Country that has raised over $8 million for local charities since its inception in 1981.

ABOUT THE THUNDERBIRDS

The Thunderbirds have the privilege and responsibility to perform for people all around the world, displaying the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen. In every hour-long demonstration, the team combines years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about.

The sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony kicks off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines our enlisted members. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon – the Air Force’s premier multi-role fighter jet.
