Last weekend the largest event in Southwest Michigan was held in Battle Creek. It is the Battle Creek Field of Flight Airshow & Balloon Festival. On the evening of July 3rd, I attended the festival with plans to see the Balloon Illume and then the evening fireworks show. What I did not expect was the exciting night time air show event that was held right after dark, before the fireworks extravaganza.
This event featured pilots flying at night, and they were shooting flames and sparks from their bi-planes lighting up the night time sky as they did flips, turns and dives to entertain the crowds.
They also fired off fireworks from their wings, making it an exciting crowd pleasing event. I managed to shoot a video of this portion of the evening show, and have included it here. Enjoy.
