The Thunder Over Michigan Air Show is this weekend and I was hearing planes flying over the office as they were heading there. As a result, I thought I might have a chance to go to Willow Run and see some of the planes.
The normal spot where I'd try to look in on the airfield was blocked off, so I couldn't even get pictures of the B-52 and Privateer. I had to settle for pictures of the F-101 Voodoo. Not that it's a bad plane or anything like that.
In fact, it's a little better because I can walk around and get different angles. But it's not the same as getting some early shots of the Blue Angels.
It was a little overcast and that made for an interesting backdrop.
Still, I'd rather have pictures of the B-29 or whatever but I guess I'll have to wait.
Nearby is the RF-84 Thunderstreak. This is the reconnaissance version of the fighter. You can see the panels for the cameras.
Again, not the Blue Angels but I wanted to watch some planes.
