Willow Run Airport, Ypsilanti, MI, USA : 20–21 July 2024

THUNDER OVER MICHIGAN™ is excited for our 2024 Air Show on July 20th & 21st! Join us for a family-friendly experience and bring the comforts of home with you; food, non-alcoholic beverages, chairs and more to enjoy the Show!

Aircraft lineup differs from morning to afternoon.

THE YANKEE AIR MUSEUM at Willow Run Airport
Founded in 1981 and located in Southeastern Michigan, the Museum quickly grew when it acquired its flyable aircraft, B-17 Flying Fortress, B-25 Mitchell Bomber, and C-47 Skytrain, offering the public the chance to fly in some of America’s most iconic aircraft. In 2004, the Museum experienced a fire that destroyed the original World War Two building that the Museum was housed in, along with most artifacts and aircraft. The efforts to rebuild began immediately, which allowed the Museum to reopen in 2010 in its current location.

Following the success of the Save the Bomber Plant campaign, the Museum purchased a portion of the Willow Run Bomber Plant that produced B-24 Liberators during World War Two. In 2013, the Museum was able to purchase 144,000 square feet of the Plant. The building is currently being used to house and protect of the Museum’s large aircraft acquisitions.

Since the reopening in 2010, the Museum has experienced rapid growth both in their collections as well as in their public programming. The Museum has acquired a dozen static aircraft, five historic flying aircraft, and continues to open exhibits annually. In 2017, the Museum became a part of Unity in Learning, a partnership that brings together the Ann Arbor Hands-on Museum, Leslie Science and Nature Center as well as the Yankee Air Museum in educational programming with a STEAM background.

Exhibits and static displays include: B-25 Mitchell, A-4 Skyhawk, B-52 Stratofortress, Sea Cobra, F-018 Hornet, F-4 Phantom, EC-121 Warning Star, F-84 Thunderstreak, F-86 & F-100 Sabre’s, F-101 Voodoo, Skymaster, Neptune and more!

Not enough? Then book a joy ride in one of these! B-17 Flying Fortress, C-47 Dakota, Ford Trimotor and UH-1 Huey Iroquois!
