SEPTEMBER 24-26, 2021

Featuring the USAF Thunderbirds & the Canadian Snowbirds!

Get Ready for 9G’s this September!

F-35A Lightning II FULL JET DEMO for the First-Time in Sacramento

This impressive aerobatic performance is made up of 14 maneuvers and showcases the full capabilities of the F-35A Lightning II.

On the slow end, the jet will get down to an airspeed of less than 100 miles per hour, just barely hanging there but in complete control. Then on the high end, Captain Kristin ‘Beo’ Wolfe, will take it up to just below the sound barrier for the high-speed pass. The jet will pull up to 9G’s, nine times the force of gravity, and carve into the air at huge angles of attack of more than 50 degrees. Check out this awesome video introducing the F-35A Demo Pilot, Capt. Kristin ‘Beo’ Wolfe:

Other demo teams may give you a sample of one or two of these maneuvers, but nowhere else will you see all the best maneuvers on the planet combined into one epic demo. There’s no filler in this demonstration, it’s a ‘light the afterburner and rage for 30 minutes kind of show’. Who can’t wait to see this performance at Mather Airport on September 24-26, 2021?

STAY TUNED FOR MORE EXCITING 2021 PERFORMER ANNOUNCEMENTS!
