Blast From The Past
What better way to spend the afternoon than watching the B-17 and P-51 fly in formation? This kind of opportunity just cannot be passed up.
Flying in formation like it was WWII, these planes are crowd favorites for a reason. Their accomplishments during the war helped turn the tide for the Allied Forces. Still, the likes of the “Mustang” and “Flying Fortress” serve as iconic symbols in pop culture.
The B-17’s massive wingspan and the P-51’s recognizable silhouette made these airshows memorable. Behold the “Yankee Lady” and its army of P-51 escorts as they fly synchronously above the Willow Run Airport during the 2021 Thunder Over Michigan Airshow.
Make sure to catch a glimpse of these rare warbirds before they are fully phased out. You’ll never regret that decision!
