SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Space is limited to purchase tickets for the 15th annual California Capital Airshow set to take over the skies Sept. 24-26 at Sacramento County’s Mather Airport.

Expected to take to the skies this year include the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the Royal Canadian Air Force Snowbirds and F-35 Lightning jet demonstration teams.
