POAM | First Responders Ticket Giveaway to Thunder Over Michigan

Yankee Air Museum Salutes First Responders

Thunder Over Michigan Ticket Giveaway Continues

News Release, July 9, 2019 — Yankee Air Museum is recognizing first responders with complimentary tickets to the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show, August 3 and 4, 2019. Men and women working in these professions consistently risk their lives, virtually every day. As a gesture of the Museum’s appreciation, two air show tickets (valued at $90) will be given to first responders, including police, fire, emergency medical technicians, tow truck operators, and those in similar capacities, on Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

The complimentary tickets will be available in the Museum Gift Shop on this day and this time only. The Museum asks recipients to present evidence of their first responder affiliation to receive the tickets. The Gift Shop is located immediately inside the public entrance at 47884 D Street, Belleville, MI. No purchase is required.

“First responders deal with very difficult circumstances, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. They’re the ones rushing in while others are fleeing dangerous situations,” said Kevin Walsh, Executive Director of Yankee Air Museum.

The 2019 Thunder Over Michigan air show has a fantastic line up, including a record gathering of F-4U Corsairs (fighter aircraft used extensively in WWII and Korea), the US Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, aerial demonstration pilot Michael Goulian, plus many aircraft on static display. Of course, there are plenty of food and drink vendors and attractions for the kids. Thunder Over Michigan is a fun time for all.

The general admission tickets are good for one day, either August 3 or 4, of the air show. Thunder Over Michigan will be held at Willow Run Airport, with gates opening at 9:00 AM. For directions, please view our website.
