Story and photos by Alan Ashley

The Thunder Over Michigan may be this weekend at Willow Run Airport, but there has been a sample of the air show in the skies above Chelsea the last two days.

You may have heard the #7 aircraft of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels the last couple of days. This aircraft is a 2-seat, F/A-18 Hornet that is used to give rides to VIPs, where they get the opportunity to experience some of the maneuvers performed during an air show.

For air shows, 6 F/A-18 Hornets are used for the performance.
