World War II Planes Flying Over Muskegon 1st Time in 17 Years
If you are in Muskegon this weekend and hear some serious rumbles in the sky, no we are not being attacked but warplanes from World War II to today will be in the air.
World War II Planes in Muskegon
The more modern planes built are not as loud as the planes built that were used in World War II.
If you are in the Muskegon area this weekend, don't be surprised if you see some unusual aircraft in the air that are louder and leave more smoke behind them than the planes you would see and hear daily.
For the first time in 17 years, the air show "Wings Over Muskegon" will return this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
