The California Capital Airshow 2009 features the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds as the headliner with the weekends show including numerous military and civilian performances. Noteworthy bonuses this year are the F-22 Raptor, B-2 Spirit, and a second jet team, the Patriots. The amount of static displays spread across the ramp is enough to keep aviation enthusiasts walking around for the entire day!
