Re: Wings Over Northern Michigan 2019

I seriously question the explanation given. "The show is TOO GOOD and always makes the money back, so we're shutting it down." What? If the show makes the money back and brings in that many visitors to the area, it should be a no brainer to continue it. It should not be impossible to run a smaller ...

Re: Wings Over Northern Michigan 2019

Some sad news out of their Facebook today. The 2019 event was their last, and will not return for 2020. Per Facebook, Wings Over Northern Michigan Airshow will not fly in 2020. By any matrix the Airshow which just completed its 10th successful year wanted to end on top! This was solidified with the ...

Incredible, John!

It was for sure the best TOM in many years IMO.

Re: Lens Upgrades

The 75-300 is the standard starter lens for just about everyone, and the next step up is usually one of these: Sigma 100-400 Tamron 100-400 Sigma 150-600 (two versions of this) Tamron 150-600 Sigma 60-600 Canon 100-400L Canon 100-400L Mk II With lenses, you get what you pay for in terms of quality....

Lens Upgrades

Hey all!

I have the Canon EOS T-6 Rebel camera and I am looking to upgrade to a more powerful and more "zoom" lens. I have the 75-300mm lens but want something a little bit better with the zoom. Any ideas?

Thanks, Alex

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2019 "Corsair Crazy"

2019 Thunder Over Michigan is a wrap this year! This year's show was a great show featuring 11 Corsairs from all over North America. I went both days and the lineup was great both in the air and on the ground! The morning show was good because you had a nice mix of warbirds and modern military power...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2019 "Corsair Crazy"

If the 9th showed up, and 3 more are on their way are we possibly getting 12 Corsairs? I assume the 3 together would be Collings, Godspeed, and Louis Horschels. If that is the case, what would the 12th be?

As of this morning everybody was saying 11 Corsairs!

Thanks!

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2019 "Corsair Crazy"

Anyone have an ETA on the F-16 Viper Team? I think it's today or tomorrow but I may head out there to catch them arriving. Thanks!
