Re: Wings Over Northern Michigan 2019

Dang. Wonder why! Whatever the reason, safety is always first! Still gonna be a great show :) Maybe they looked at the weather!? Yikes. always terrible when you see a lot of hard work from volunteers get rained out. I always love this show because they do put on a great show and it's well laid out ...

Re: National Cherry Festival Air Show

Pretty strong lineup! Never been - so I assume the show is over the beach and not at an airport? That is correct. All aircraft take off from Cherry Capital Airport, but the show takes place over the south end of West Grand Traverse Bay. Show center is at Open Space Park, but people pack the beaches...

Re: National Cherry Festival Air Show

I agree this is a different type of show, but they usually line up a few good acts every year and it's all at no cost. As mentioned Friday is practice day and you can pretty much see the entire show that afternoon as well. I'll also throw out there that on Friday evening there is an open ramp at the...
