California Capital Airshow was a tremendous success March 2006 with the highlight a full airshow from the Blue Angels.

Our sincerest thanks to all the wonderful spectators who attended the 1st Annual California Capital Airshow! We were overwhelmed with the passion and enthusiasm that this region has for airshows and certainly had a few challenges keeping up with all the wonderful crowds. We are actively engaged in planning for 2007 and are including modifications to transportation, parking and food and beverage concessions. Please check back here periodically for updates on the 2nd Annual California Capital Airshow.

JOIN US DECEMBER 9, 2006,
AS WE TRAVEL BACK IN TIME TO 1941 on the Peral Harbor Troop Train


Ride along as we experience that “Day of Infamy” aboard our vintage railcar and celebrate America, our flag and our freedoms. Participate in our salute to America’s World War II heroes; watch and listen as veterans share the hopes, fears and uncertainty of the times. Honor those men and women who paid the ultimate price for the precious freedoms we often take for granted.


Help us salute our Guests of Honor, the brave Veterans who were there when Pearl Harbor erupted in flames, on December 7th, 1941. This is a rare opportunity to share the personal stories of these brave battle Survivors. Hear it just as they lived it.

These spirited men and women are now in their golden years, and growing fewer in numbers, daily. Sadly, we are now losing our WWII Veterans at the rate of 1165 a day! That means, the WWII era is quickly coming to an end. This is your opportunity to join us as we honor these wonderful patriots, to thank them for the freedoms we enjoy today.

This patriotic excursion is dedicated to all WWII veterans and those who served on the home-front. They demonstrated courage, strength of character and determination to win, while serving and sacrificing in their fight to defend freedom and our Republic. These are our Heroes.
