Hey guys, I've been so busy lately I haven't been able to get all these pictures up. I hear it's Aviation day or something though so it seems like the time is right!
My son enjoying the view (and yelling IT'S A PLANE! Over and over!)
Parade close up:
On August 9th my wife's company had a VIP Tent up against the runway at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti, MI for the Thunder Over Michigan Airshow. When I say VIP, I mean VIP - this was bad ass. All the planes taxied by us, the para-troopers landed right next to us, it was nuts.
Because of the awesomely historic airport and Bomber Factory at Willow Run which produced Bombers for WWII there was a huge classic plane display. I've got a ton of pictures, so brace yourselves - classic planes are coming.
We were right up against the runway, we unfortunately had to leave before the Thunderbirds went up for their display, but that's ok it probably would have been too loud for our 1.5 year old (who LOVED the planes).
Here you go guys, watch for the series of the paratrooper, he had red smoke hooked to his boot so we could see him!
I'm no plane expert so have fun labeling all the planes you can if you want! Photos surprisingly taken with my Galaxy S3 Potato.
Entering the Airport (yeah we just drove right in, no TSA groping or anything lol):
First pictures from our VIP area:
(bad ass pose when he landed ^^^^)
Time for some close up planes:
Dude in the Mustang was having a BLAST up there (top right corner above my wife and son)
They said this was the Parade Formation, 5 different planes together
Old and New together:
Oh were we about to leave? Hold on let's stop and enjoy the traffic until we are allowed to walk back across this runway.
