    CCA is indeed hosting the Patrouille de France April 15. They will be doing the only flying during the event. There may be a few static displays, but not much. Good chance to come see their Alpha Jets perform and see their A400M as well. Tickets are available ONLY on-line and when they sell out, that's it. No ticket sales the day of the event. Ticket includes parking.

    Capital Airshow this year is only one day with only one airshow flying act? That's different. In the past this has been a weekend event with several acts drawing thousands of spectators. I believe it's typically been held in late Sept or early Oct. I see the gates don't open till 10am..........why the big change this year. I live about 50 miles from Sacramento, all my local TV stations are from Sacramento and this is the first I've heard of the Airshow, usually it's widely promoted. Did the Yanks Museum open a branch at Mather in Sacramento?

    Negative. This is a completely separate one-time event. CCA is still 9-10 Sep 2017.
