When I enlisted, we didn’t have direct deposit so I would have to drive to Selfridge from Romulus to pick up my check and les. Ended up fueling a few of these birds over the years.

We wanted to let you know the rest of the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds will be flying in early this afternoon.

You might say the airshow isn't until Saturday! Well, you are correct but they love it here so much they are taking a few vacation days to explore the area.

The U.S. Air Force Thunderbird's tentative flight schedule will be Thursday 12:00pm-1:30pm and our full Air Show practice will be on Friday 1:00pm-4:00pm.

Go Navy! Blue Angels! ha ha - Actually Welcome USAF flight demonstration team Thunderbirds! We hope you find Traverse City warm and inviting and you have a safe and awesome flight and time here. Godspeed Thunderbirds USAF! Off we go into the wild blue…

Love seeing the planes

Will the Blue Angels be there?

Yay!! So exciting. I heard them fly in yesterday while i was at work and i was like ready to run outand watch them

Steven Costello.

I am walking down to the coast guard station Friday night to see them

Juliet Denise 👍✈️

I was talking to my dad who lives at Cordia when one flew over them...he was startled at first but once I reminded him it was probably the Blue Angels, he was relieved!

For my friends back East, this airshow takes place over West Bay of Lake Michigan, this coming Saturday and Sunday. This is the same body of water I walked on this past winter...when it was iced over!

Can't wait!

Making the 7 hour drive Thursday. The airshow is one of my favorites to see.

They are coming from Dayton oh 🙂 they put on a good show this weekend!!!

This Thursday and Friday? Or next Thursday and Friday?

We will be there !

How many are here right now? Is it just the one?

Thanks

My family has never been to the show. Does anyone have any advice about where we should view it from?

It's sad that they no longer provide direct grants to artists. In fact they no longer even have the word "artist" in their mission statement.

For one night only!
Charlie Millard Band and The Go Rounds perform on July 19 at the Art Park forest amphitheater.
