Thunder Over Michigan 2018 - The Fighters, Attack Aircraft, And More On Static Display

There was a Thunderbolt, a P47D to be exact:

Later, we got the lightning and the rain to accompany it.

There was a gorgeous P-51C done up in Tuskegee Airmen colors.

An FM-2 Wildcat, unfortunately still in its protective wrappings and considering the storm that was to hit, it was a wise idea, but not great for nice photography.

For those with more modern taste, there was a sharp looking F16 out of Ohio.

It's not a Airshow unless Bert makes an appearance. Bert who? Brrrrt the A-10, of course.

Of course, you can't kick ass without tanker gas, and the Michigan Air National Guard had a tanker on display:

It was so big and where it was located I couldn't get a decent shot with the whole plane in it.

Then the squall line reached us and the ran began to fall, so we beat a hasty retreat to the photo tent and waited it out.

Finally at 13:00 the rain ceased and the clouds rose enough that the airshow could begin.
