U.S. Navy Blue Angels Air Cherry Festival Air Show – July 2, 3 & 4, 2016

National Cherry Festival Takes Flight over West Grand Traverse Bay Again in 2016!

Join us for the 90th National Cherry Festival Air Show, sponsored by Cherry Capital Airport, Northern Michigan Toyota Dealers, Sam’s Club, Schmuckal Oil, AVFlight, Harbour Air, NMC Aviation, Charter Spectrum, and the U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday, July 2, 3 and 4 for three exciting air shows!

Watching from the shores of West Grand Traverse Bay? Listen live on WTCM AM 580 to hear air show commentators give minute to minute maneuvering.

U.S. Navy Blue Angels

During the aerobatic demonstrations over West Grand Traverse Bay, the U.S. Navy Blue Angels fly six F/A-18 Hornet aircraft, split into the Diamond Formation (Blue Angels 1 through 4) and the Lead and Opposing Solos (Blue Angels 5 and 6). Most of the show alternates between maneuvers preformed by the Diamond Formation and those performed by the Solos.

The Diamond, in tight formation and usually at lower speeds (400 mph), performs maneuvers such as formation loops, barrel rolls and transitions from one formation to another. The Solos showcase the high performance capabilities of their individual aircraft through the execution of high-speed passes, slow passes, fast rolls, slow tools, and very tights turns. The highest speed found at an air show is 700 mph (just under Mach 1) and the lowest speed is 120 mph.

Some of the maneuvers include both solo aircraft performing at once, such as opposing passes (toward each other in what appears to be a collision course) and mirror formations (back-to-back, belly-to-belly, or wingtip-to-wingtip, with one jet flying inverted). The Solos join the Diamond Formation near the end of the show for a number of maneuvers in the Delta Formation.

Jill Jack – The Homestead – Music on the Mountain – July 7, 2016

Jill Jack’s magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She’s been lauded in equal measure to her talents: Since 1997 she’s won 37 Detroit Music Awards (see full list) in every conceivable category that applies to a singer-songwriter. Much of this provincial success is due to her charming stage presence and emotive songwriting. It’s simply called connecting, and it’s the bounty of a true songwriter open to all of life: her own defeats, victories, hopes dashed, dreams fulfilled, her muse, her loneliness, her misplaced love and her romantic successes.

You get all of Jill Jack in a performance — her blend of folk and rock traditions, her open humor, her fine band. Jill harbors little of her process from her audience — each performance is about opening a window and shining a light into her songwriting, leading inevitably to the intense relationship with her fans. Her career is founded on folk’s best idea — that there’s a shared knowing between artist and audience, a conversation that flows both ways during a show. Plus she’s a strong woman who’s won over the toughest town in a man’s world — she’s a bandleader, the principal songwriter in a large group bearing her own name, an employer and automatic arbiter of musician’s issues.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door

Thursday, July 7th, 2016 on Bay Mountain
Concert: 7pm to 9pm
Transportation and Happy Hour (cash bar): 6pm to 7pm
