U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds


Those red, white and blue jets you'll hear (and if you're quick, maybe see) screaming across the skies in eastern Washtenaw County the next few days belong to the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration team, in town for this weekend's Baltia Air Lines Thunder over Michigan air show.

Show director Kevin Walsh believes it says good things about the Yankee Air Museum and the volunteers who help make the show possible that the Thunderbirds chose to come here.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will headline next year's Thunder over Michigan air show at Willow Run Airport. 

Yankee Air Museum Public Relations Director Bob Hynes says the show is scheduled for August 9th and 10th.
