"With sunshine and summer right around the corner, you might be starting to plan enjoyable trips, events , and vacations that either you or your family and you will be participating in.  If you’re looking for a fun filled event, that promises to be an great time for people of all ages, why not check out the 2011 Thunder over Michigan Air Show on July 23rd and 24th at the Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, Michigan.  This year’s show has a star studded line up consisting of The Blue Angels, The Viper East F-16, The European Theatre WWII Battle Reenactment and much, much more. The 2011 air show will no doubt be an unforgettable experience for all who attend with many opportunities to see some of the best aviation acts in the nation.  For more information on event attractions and featured performers, ticket prices, directions, or any other questions you may have, please go to and check it out for yourself!"

For plane lovers the season of the air show is fast approaching. Some people keep close - like staying in town for  Toronto's Canadian International Air show in September, or taking the time to travel to the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show. The planes will take to the skies above the Willow Run Airport on July 23rd & 24th, 2011.
The Ypsilanti, Michigan show is exciting because of the mix of aircraft that fly during the weekend and that are parked and available for up close review, in some cases you can even get into the planes for a tour. 
You can watch the planes taxi down the runway, put the petal to the metal and soar into the sky and watch the planes do a high speed bank down on the deck to provide some great photo opportunities. 
In 2010 they had a tremendous amount of B17 bombers and shiny Mustangs fighter planes (you can see more of last years event on my earlier post here).
