Hear the Roar!

Meet the F-86 Sabre "Smokey"!

Hear the roar of the F-86 Sabre as it displays the moves that made it the top U.S. fighter aircraft from the Korean War. Thunder over Michigan is proud to present the Warbird Heritage Foundation's North American F-86 Sabre "Smokey" as a part of this year's lineup! Catch a glimpse of this iconic aircraft as it tears through Michigan skies at speeds of up to 650 miles per hour! Historically known as a fierce fighter with its ability to take down the enemy's hostile aircraft in flight or on the ground, the F-86 Sabre represented the United States' air superiority during the Korean War.

The 2012 Thunder Over Michigan Air Show has a packed lineup featuring:

  • "Mustang Mania" with more than twenty P-51 Mustangs
  • The rare B-29 Superfortress "FIFI"
  • The MH-60S Knighthawk demo
  • The world's largest WWII air & ground battle reenactment featuring more than 75 vehicles, aircraft support, and more than 500 reenactors.
  • Modern military displays, dozens of unique ground displays, the Kidz Zone Play Area, interactive displays, and free admittance to the Yankee Air Museum.
