THUNDER over MICHIGAN 2021 - Willow Run Airport / USA
Update: 2020/09/10 by Shawn Clish / CHK6
On August 6 and 7, 2021, I was back at one of my favourite places in the United States, Willow Run Airport (KYIP) for the Thunder Over Michigan air show. Thunder Over Michigan was back after having to cancel the event in 2020 due to safety concerns associated with the coronavirus. Health issues weren’t the only obstacle for organizers this year as the airport was undergoing multiple major construction projects, including resurfacing Runway 05R-23L, the main runway used for the show. As usual, the team from the Yankee Air Museum was able to find solutions to all the extra challenges and presented a world class event that featured four sold out drive-in style shows, one each morning and another in the afternoon.
