    Kevin Walsh anounced the theme to next years show last week over on ASB. "The Gathering of Fortresses and Legends.....The Final Mission". The dates are Aug 7-8. He also mentioned that the WW2 battle will include all B-17's, several Mustangs, Ed Russels BF-109 and posibly the Collings Foundation ME-262 .


    This was suggested by someone on WIX, Mike Luther (one of the organizers) said that this was what they were thinking of doing, but with smaller flak guns.
    Should be another great show!!!! :D

    Money, what's that? That stuff seems to flow out of my bank account faster that it goes in lately.
    I think instead of a big hunting trip next year I may head to this show instead. Been wanting to go for a few years now, and really wanted to go a couple years ago when they had a multitude of P-47's on hand.

    Cool, I've seen John Mohr perform in his Stearman a couple times and it is amazing what he can do with that aircraft.

    Thanks for the info Rhino. I'll be in Toronto for my Dad's 80th birthday and he would love this. I might just plan to take him to this show. He'd love it!

    I guess that there is one advantage to living in the dieing state of michigan. I get to go to this show every year. Well almost every year. I did miss last year, hence no posting of photo's. However I do plan on attending both days this year.

    Unless money is a problem I shouldnt have a reason not to make it for two days. My wife has family up there so I even have a place to stay if we go. May skip the EAA Airventure this year and if I do then i will go to this one.

    If you need thunder pictures, the Yankee Air Museum web site at has a photo gallery with a group of photos from years past. Plus various shots of other aircraft.. FYI
