Thunder Over Michigan – 2016

A reminder for everyone in southeast Michigan, or anyone who can get there on a day trip.  Thunder Over Michigan, the annual air show put on by the Yankee Air Force is this weekend, August 20 and 21.  I think the biggest headline for this year is a tactical demo by the F-22 Raptor.  This will be the first time I’ve seen one fly, so I am very excited!  Other things of note will be an F-18 demo, the Breitling aerobatic team (in Albatross jets), MiG-17, F-100, Hind helicopter, WWII land battle and many others.

Thunder Over Michigan is always a ton of fun, and plenty loud.  Check it out if you can!
