Battle Creek Plans Air Show Without Thunderbirds or Blue Angels

A military demo team is possible
Even without a military jet team, the show is on for Battle Creek's mid-summer air event. Neither the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds nor the U.S. Navy Blue Angels included the 2015 Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show and Balloon Festival on their schedules, but local organizers are hoping for a replacement for the July 1-5 event.

Calling them significant recruiting draws, the Pentagon has announced a resumption of several community outreach programs including participation in air shows by the Air Force Thunderbirds and the U.S.
