Re: THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN 2024

Yup we were sitting on Ecorse for most of the rhino practice run. But towards the end a cop made everyone move. He let everyone stay on the road, we just had to be on the other side of the police barricades. Yeah, the other side of Denton rd, which is unacceptable to me. It was honestly perfect. Wh...

Re: THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN 2024

Saw em from ecorse service rd. That was absolutely amazing. Was going to go to Ecorse but cops have been shutting it off last few shows, even practice days. Sometimes they let it slide when there are no jet teams but I was on the opposite end off Tyler. Yup we were sitting on Ecorse for most of the...

Re: THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN 2024

C-17 came in with a 3x F-16 “escort” 8-) C-17 straight in and the F-16’s beat up the field with some low approaches. Insane from the grass field underneath RWY 5! Saw em from ecorse service rd. That was absolutely amazing. Was going to go to Ecorse but cops have been shutting it off last few shows,...

Re: THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN 2024

That C-54 was a shocker for me, didn't know there was one flying.
Mig looked like an improvised practice, TFR was lifted at that point but perhaps due to the low traffic caused by that computer bug shutting down airports, they [and the Mustangs] decided to slip it in.

Re: THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN 2024

F-16 call sign Skull [22?] came in, didn't get a good look at it but looked to be in a nice livery scheme with red white & blue tail, radio'ed the tower that he was about 40 miles out and only had 20 minutes of fuel. Runway 23 was down for some reason and he wanted that runway, they had it ready...

Re: Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival 2024

Really good practise,I tried to get to my old spot by the cemetery but they had the street blocked so I ended up by the other end of the runway, and it was a great spot. Got there a bit after 11 and unfortunately for me, the Tbirds were just landing, so I hoped they would do a 2nd practice as they o...

Re: Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival 2024

Am hoping for some arrivals and practice tomorrow, weather looks decent with chance of showers. I haven't been there probably a decade, used to have a good spot right next to a cemetery, am going to try that and if that don't work, looks like some good spots around a sherwin williams on the other si...

Re: Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show & Balloon Festival 2024

Surprised this forum is so dead with the show imminent, any arrivals/practice ?

Going to take my chances and go tomorrow, I got what look to be a couple good spots picked out.
