Dates Changed For Thunder Over Michigan

With sequestration grounding the U-S Air Force Thunderbirds, the Yankee Air Museum has had to change the dates for its "Thunder over Michigan" air show from Fathers Day weekend to August 10th and 11th.

Show Director Kevin Walsh says it would have been tough to compete with other events happening that weekend - including a race at Michigan International Speedway without the Thunderbirds. 

He says most of the performers were able to accommodate the date change. 

The date change has made it possible to book the world's only flyable Mosquito fighter/bomber.  Walsh says the change will also make it possible for the show to present a rare gathering of Sky Raider aircraft during the Vietnam re-enactment. 

Tickets for the original dates for "Thunder over Michigan" will be accepted at the gate on the new dates, August 10th and 11th.
