We went to the Inaugural California Capital Airshow at Mather Field in Rancho Cordova on Sunday.
I went there for one reason and one reason only...
Yup...to watch things go boom!
It was pretty cool. I've never seen a pyrotechnic display at an airshow before and have always wanted to see one. It was worth the 2 hour and 15 minute drive and the 1 1/2 hour wait in traffic to go 3 miles to see it. I thought it would be done with the WWII warbirds; the Bearcat, the Hellcat, The T28 Trojan, the P51 Mustang and the P40 Warhawk. But no...it was done with an A-10 Warthog!
The Blues were good too. An acquantance of mine (he has a better digital camera) got some pretty good shots of the Blues.
Not too bad of an airshow. It was the first one they've done in Rancho Cordova and Mather. I hope next time they get some cops out to direct traffic on the way IN to the airshow instead of on the way OUT of the airshow.
