Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I’m gonna guess American AirPower museums “Miss Hap” and their C-47 My bad, I had forgotten that "Yellow Rose" was already announced. I'm assuming that means "That's All, Brother" is also coming since they are operated by the same wing. I don't think there is confirmation on Mis...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

For the most part, the drive-in style will remain due to construction at the airport confining some area. With a drive-in style show, there will be a better idea of how many cars will be there for traffic flow versus regular admission and allowing purchase of parking at the gate. This is actually a...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Lots going on, but add the Sandbar Mitchell to the list of "airframes" as she will be on display as well 8-)

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I'm assuming the static displays will be available from the time the parking gates open until a set time to help expedite the arrival/departure process, as well as allow the aircraft that are on static display to fly. That just means we're going to have to be there right when the parking gates open...

You will be able to see the B-25's, don't worry ;)

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Just a heads up, the main runway at YIP is under construction until September 15th 2021. Airshow arrivals will either land 27 or 23R, but 23R is much narrower than Runway 27, so many may land on 27. I'm curious how arrivals will be this year. Last year's 5R (main runway) was fantastic. 23R is that ...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Another Mitchell Confirmed, The Dakota Territory Air Museum's B-25J "Betty's Dream". Keep the Mitchells Coming! Take-off Time and Betty's Dream are pretty special considering Tom Duffy doesn't normally do airshows and the last Mitchell gathering it attended was almost a decade ago, and Be...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Website is updated but still no Aircraft List up. Can't wait to see the list of aerial displays this year. As mentioned on their website and kind of obvious, there will be a lot more aerial flybys and performances. With only about two hours of flying, I'm wondering how much they will try to cram in...
