They are nice Tom. Where were you stood? I was at the link in the fence nearish the tower

I was in front of my car a little right of the tower.

I think it had an issue with the tail wheel. It didnít seem to want to lock up. Pilot pulled out of the display and cycled the landing gear. It seemed to do the trick but after a few more passes it had dropped down again.

I think it's an ongoing problem, there were some photos a few weeks ago I saw on a forum that had a Mustang flying with it's tail wheel down. I can't say for sure it's the same aircraft though, 'cause I can't find the pic right now.

Thunder Over Michigan was phenomenal this year ! 7 Mustangs, 11 Corsair. Plua 2 B-25s, a B-17, plus a range of newer stuff. One of the highlights was also the Cobra and Huey rides. I didn't go on one, but watching and hearing them all day was a treat enough !

I was there!  Dang, we should have met up.  Great shots, and yes, it was amazing.  Nice little museum, a slew of Corsairs, good show.
