Thunder Over Michigan 2003

Thunder Over Michigan is hosted once per year by the Yankee Air Force, located at Willow Run Airport, in Belleville Michigan.

This batch of photos was a major factor in my switch to digital. They were taken with my old Maxxum 9, a great camera, but I was using the last of my refridgerated Royal Gold 100. It was just a little too old, and I got some pretty weird color. Combine that with my dying Minolta Dimage Scan Dual, and a HUGE dose of scratches and dust (did I mention the dust?), from one of the last labs I thought I could trust, and you get the big steaming pile of photos you see below. These are the ones I could use, and it took a ton of post prosessing.
