Thunder Over Michigan August 2012

The Yankee Air Force is staging the phenomenal 2012 Thunder Over Michigan Air Show and WWII Battle Re-enactment over the Saturday to Sunday August 4-5 weekend in Ypsilanti, Michigan, USA. The amount of historical aircraft that they can bring to the show is amazing - from a fleet of B-17 Bombers in past years to this years Mustang Mania group of over 20 sleek and deadly combat fighters, these aerial performers have their own brand of shock and awe.
The Mustang provides close support to the ground forces

The Willow Run Airport has loads of parking with a day of event cost of $10 per vehicle and General Admission is $30 with kids 15 and under free. You can save money by buying your tickets in advance. Costs are in US dollars.

The aircraft scheduled for Thunder feature such highlights as the Sea Harrier, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, several B-25 Mitchells and the F-86 Sabre. As well as the aerial show, the static displays allow and up close view of the flying machines. Everything is up close and easily visible and the hospitality tents look like they have shade and extremely cold beer!

The World War Two battle re-enactment features an historical encampment that you can wander through and visit with the participants. Meanwhile "The WWII Battle Reenactment brings to life the sights sounds and smells of ground and air warfare over WWII Europe. Using realistic historical re-enactors and restored vintage aircraft, tanks, half-tracks and other equipment, this incredible reenactment brings history to life! Watch in awe as U.S. and German troops square off in battle before your eyes featuring authentic armor and reenactors in historically accurate dress. Keep a watchful eye on the sky as P-51 Mustangs provide tactical air support for the embattled American ground forces!"
