Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I've been beating the drum for a Grumman theme for probably 15 years and I don't see any reason to stop. I know TOM likes the spectacle of "most __ since __" and that theme would probably make it tough to make a statement like that, but there are plenty of warbird operators that have supp...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

What an amazing show! We were there Friday and Saturday and this was easily one of the best airshow weekends ever. I imagine most that attended will agree. People can gripe and complain about the ticket prices until they fall over dead, but Yankee sold out both shows and that's really all that matt...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

I am planning on coming out on Friday to try to view the practice offsite before I go to the show on Saturday.
