     Thunder Over Michigan, Willow Run Airport, Ypsilanti, MI
August 7-8, 2010  (Photos taken August 7)

Thunder over Michigan always strives to specialize each year in putting on both static and flying display one particular warbird.  This year it was the return of the B-17 Flying Fortress with eight of the aircraft on hand to celebrate its 75th anniversary. This is the second time the Yankee Air Museum has had eight of these great warbirds at the show with 2005 being the first time this was done.  Also the very rare F-100F owned and flown by Dean Cutshall of Ft. Wayne, IN was on at the show for both static and flying display.  We have featured four ground photos of this great warbird along with shots of the fly-bys made during the event.  Dean would make a high speed pass and then at show center would like the afterburner, which being an early model jet engine, takes about a second between when the igniter lights and the burner kicks in.  This makes for some great fly-bys for this rare aircraft.  There are 65 photos below with both static warbirds and those making fly-bys.


At 10:30 in the morning there was a WWII re-enactment with P-51 Old Crow supporting the Allied forces.  There was some realy nice low level fly-bys performed by the Mustang.

Heritage Flight.  The crowd was so moved by this fly-by it broke into spontaneous applause as the formation of three came by!

In the afternoon all8 B-17s flew as support for the re-enactment and then did a mass fly-by and a Missing Man Formation with a P-51.  That is featured in the next series of photos.
