FAIRFIELD – Headlined by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, this two-day Travis Air Show will showcase the years of training,  experience, and the focus on excellence that embodies what the Air Force is all about.

This year’s event theme is Honoring Hometown Heroes and will recognize admirable individuals and groups, both military and civilian, from throughout the Northern California community. In addition to the headliner event, you can enjoy a variety of other performers scheduled to include the U.S. Army Golden Knights parachute team as well as the F-22 Raptor and C-17 Globemaster III demonstration teams.
