Sacramento is the capital city of the U.S. state of California.  Located at the confluence of the Sacramento River and the American River in Northern California, its estimated 2018 population of 501,334 makes it the 6th largest city in California.   Sacramento is the seat of the California Assembly, the Governor of California, and Supreme Court of California, making it the state's political center and a hub for lobbying and think tanks. Sacramento is also the cultural and economic core of the Sacramento metropolitan area.

Getting there ...

The main purpose of this trip is to attend the California Capital Airshow held at Mather Airport in Sacramento area.  We started our drive in the late morning to plan have a lunch near a supercharge station in Vacaville (as this was our first time to drive our Tesla Model 3 for a long distance overnight trip).   After a quick lunch, both our car battery and our stomach were full and ready to continue our journey to Sacramento.










Second Day ...









Thunderbirds' performance was paused when No.4 reported some mechanical issue and came back to land safely.  Although Thunderbirds continued their demonstration with only 5-plane formation, we decided to leave early to beat the crowds.
