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...

Re: National Championship Air Races 2021

Question for anyone who has gone before - would I miss a ton if I didn't get there until Friday morning? Looking at the sample schedule it looks like it is mostly the lighter classes in the first couple days, plus airshow practices. I was originally planning to be there for the whole event but I'm ...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Oh, I wouldn't forget to mention about a dozen Mitchells buzzing the airspace as well. Make it a dozen and a half As for the museum’s former Caribou that is now owned by John Bagely, it still has a lot of work to be done. It had the work done to get it to ferrying status but a lot has to be done to...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

There is a new aircraft announced for TOM via a FB Group. The DHC-4 Caribou that YAM had, It got flightworthy and it's being delivered to someone in Idaho but he's going to be a regular at TOM! N6080, none other than Mr. John Bagley! I hope the "regular at TOM" is true, ID to MI isn't a s...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

It was funny because I never found any information on it in my emails, but the email I got was in my spam section. I don't know why, but you can try checking there. You get sent a redeemable code where you can get a free pass and you only have today and tomorrow to do that. But I assume they will m...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Tickets are now on sale and to redeem any tickets purchased prior to March 12th. For a whopping $165 you can either see the B-25's and F-35 Demo team or Thunderbirds. :| It's getting frustrating not getting any of this information. There's nothing on their site, I haven't got any email blasts, are ...

Re: All Military Demo Teams (Discussion)

I'll add what I (think I) know. The C-17 "West Coast" team is called that because I believe there was/is supposed to be an "East" team based out of Charleston. The C-17 demos have always been a bit murky to me. I seem to recall that they used to be flown by pretty much any unit ...
