    2013 Thunder Over Michigan Airshow Aug 10-11

    I attended the Thunder Over Michigan air show this past weekend at Willow Run Aiport in Belleville Michigan. One of
    the main attractions for me was the F100F Super Sabre, since I had never seen one at an airshow before. It did not
    disappoint. All around it was a great show.

    Firstly, here are some shots of the statics taken early Saturday and Sunday mornings:

    F-100 Super Sabre or "The Hun"




    Sabres reflected


    B-25


    Douglas Skyraiders




    Douglas A-4 Skyhawk


    F-86 Sabre




    P-51 Mustangs




    T-6s




    C-47


    Thanks for looking

    Thanks Danny! For the front view Mustang shot, I used a Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens which I borrowed from a friend. Really nice lens!

    Thanks so much guys!

    Danny, that's probably it for air shows for me this year. Although I will definitely be hanging around the AAM this Labor day weekend for their "Wings, Wheels and Tracks" event.
