The California International Airshow to host Two Military Jet Teams in 2023
Both the United States Air Force Thunderbirds and the Canadian Forces Snowbirds will highlight the 42nd Annual California International Airshow in Salinas on October 7-8, 2023. This will be the first time in 16 years that the Salinas Airshow has been selected to host two military jet teams.
Karen Curtis, President of the Airshow said “We are excited to be selected to host these two “world class” teams at the same airshow. It is a tribute to the quality of our organization, our volunteers and sponsors that help make the California International Airshow one of the best in the Country”.
In addition to the two military jet teams, the airshow in 2023 will host again the popular Red Bull Air Force Team, World Aerobatic Champion Michael Goulian in his Extra 300, and local favorite Vicky Benzing in her Boeing Stearman. Other Military and civilian performers and statics will be announced in the future on the CIA website www.salinasairshow.com
The California International Airshow is an all-volunteer 501 © 3 non-profit organization that produces the airshow at Salinas Airport and then turns the net proceeds over to charity. Over $8.5 million has been raised for local charities since the inception in 1981.
