U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds fly in Cherry Festival Airshow

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The 91st annual National Cherry Festival attracted several thousands of people, many of them attending the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds Airshow on Saturday.

Talented pilots flipped, turned and rolled through the sky in their classic World War II aircrafts and the famous Thunderbirds.

People attending the airshow came from across the country and throughout the state of Michigan.

Several families say the Cherry Festival Airshow is a family tradition, one that they look forward to every year.

“Love the crowds, the people, love the food, love the cherries, love the atmosphere, love Traverse City,” said Jen Fruppen. “It’s a great kid friendly atmosphere and it's a tradition that we have been doing for ten years. It's a great fun time.”

The airshow will happen again on Sunday at 1:15 p.m.
