BATTLE CREEK, MI (WKZO) -- It’s the biggest annual event every year in Southwest Michigan. The Field of Flight Airshow and Balloon festival had to scrub their first two scheduled balloon events last night, a mass launch and the Balloon Illume because of windy conditions. T
here are plenty of big events planned and no rain in sight. More balloon launches, the big annual fireworks show at dusk tonight. And the daylong air shows Saturday and Sunday headlined by the Air Force Precision flight team.
Thunderbird spokesman Sgt. Jacob Richmond says they may be show stoppers but the main goal is to show what all those tax dollars are buying. Their other job is to remind folks they are protecting American’s in some pretty nasty places.
