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:

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.
