Thunder Over Michigan Returns This Weekend
The Thunder Over Michigan air show returns to Willow Run Airport this weekend.
WEMU's Bob Eccles has the details in this report:
Vintage war-birds take to the skies above Willow Run Airport this weekend at the 15th annual Thunder Over Michigan air show. Show organizers had to do some quick re-scheduling after the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds jet team was grounded due to sequestration-related budget cuts.
Show Director Kevin Walsh says it wasn't as big a problem for Thunder Over Michigan as it was for some other air shows.
Among the performers scheduled to participate in Thunder Over Michigan this weekend:
- A rare gathering of six Vietnam-era Skyraider aircract
- a North American F-100F Super Sabre jet
- British de Havilland Vampire T-55.
Thunder Over Michigan takes place Saturday and Sunday at Willow Run Airport. Tickets can be purchased online or at the gate. Kids 15 and under are admitted free
