Flying is the only way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Bolster the bond earthly loved ones just don't understand with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two single-day tickets to the Thunder Over Michigan Air Show on Saturday, July 23, or Sunday, July 24, at Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti (a $50 value). Kids under 15 get in free.
The Thunder Over Michigan Air Show delights aviation lovers with aerial feats and appearances from classic aircraft, with performers and attractions including the U.S. Navy Blue Angels in their agile F/A-18s, as well an A-4 Skyhawks and an MIG-17 reenacting Vietnam dogfights. History buffs can inspect vintage WWII-era aircraft, such as the Mitsubishi Zero and P-51D Mustang, and those searching for modern marvels can view a grounded MV-22 Osprey helicopter for a first-hand look at the versatile multi-mission aircraft, which aids in troop transportation and novel-length skywriting. General-admission tickets allow onlookers to bring chairs or blankets to position throughout the show space and get the best look possible at sky-high displays. On-site parking is available for $10.
