Thunder Over Michigan Air Show returns, and you’ll hear it before you see it. This year, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels take the sky with a stunt-filled performance full of tight flying formations, spins, dives, and upside down flying. Michael Goulian, a professional airplane acrobatics specialist known for not just flying in an air show, but “attacking it,” is set to take the sky, too. Ex-military aircraft flying demos include “Fat Albert”—a hulking four turboprop (four propellers)—and an F-16 fighter jet. Pack the cooler, slap on some sunscreen, and marvel at the marriage between man and machine. And pack your earplugs.

August 29, 30, Willow Run Airport, 801 Kirk Profit Dr, Ypsilanti, MI.
Advance tickets, $30. Day of, $40. Parking, $15-$20.

Green Book is Worth the Trip

An elite black pianist tours the segregated south with a white roughneck chauffeur. Green Book combines two crowd-pleasing formulas—the road movie and the true story—with two stellar lead actors, Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali. Mortensen plays Tony Lip, a white, working class second-generation Italian-American from the Bronx who works as a nightclub bouncer. Ali plays
