Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Website released. https://www.yankeeairmuseum.org/airshow/ I'm surprised they don't have "Mitchell Madness" listed as an attraction yet. I am curious to see when they will start getting Mitchell confirmations for the show. Usually it is late fall early winter. The website has been up for a month or...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

First Mitchell added to list for "Mitchell Madness" is YAM's very own, the B-25 "Yankee Warrior". Now when it comes to thought, It was certainly to say in the very beginning, that YAM's 'Yankee Warrior' a North American B-25 Mitchell Bomber would be apart, it would seem very relevant to say, since ...

Re: Airshow costs for the organizer

I have a question regarding airshow costs for the organizer. In the US, does the airshow hosting a DoD demo team have to pay for the flying cost? Or is that all funded by the DoD (taxpayers) as part of the USAF/USN/USMC recruiting effort? A mixture of both. There is a flat "appearance fee" that is ...

Re: Airshow London 2020 (Now "Sky Drive" Presented by ASL)

You mean "Strat-urday", right? Man, I've been going to London's show since 1981. Every year there's a show, I'm there. I've seen firsts, lasts and onlys (like the one and only time for the B-2), but I've never seen TWO Buffs in the air at once! This is primo stuff. Hell, this is getting to be one o...

Re: Thunder Over Michigan 2021

Trust me on this one, no Thunderbirds. I'll second this too and confirm there will be no Thunderbirds next year. Types of years like this at Thunder feature a record breaking headliner independent of a jet team. Jet Team years usually feature a big theme with a wide variety of aircraft (though one ...
