The show is now the Baltia Air Lines Thunder over Michigan Air Show. 

Baltia Air Lines is the country's newest passenger airline, with offices at Willow Run airport.  It plans to start non-stop 747 service between New York and St. Petersburg, Russia after receiving FAA certification in September. 

Baltia Vice President of Finance Barry Clare says the Thunder over Michigan Air Show was a good fit for the airline.

"We're happy to be part of the Willow Run airport community," Clare says, "and and we're excited about brining new employment opportunities to Michigan, as well."

Clare says Thunder over Michigan will be the airline's first chance to introduce itself to the public. 

The Baltia Air Lines Thunder over Michigan air show takes place August 9th and 10th at Willow Run airport, featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.
