Thunder Over Michigan Air Show returns

. July 31, 2015.

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.
