In mid-June, the Battle Creek Air Show and Hot Air Balloon Festival takes over the Battle Creek Executive Airport. Voted one of the best air shows in North America, it features military aircraft and civilian aircraft, live entertainment, a carnival, and two spectacular fireworks shows. There’s also a Nathan Hammond Night Show and the Shockwave truck exploded.
Shockwave truck exploded
A jet-fueled semi-truck has exploded during a Michigan air show, killing one person. The crash happened during a pyrotechnic display in which a Shockwave Jet Truck raced two planes at over 300 mph. Several videos have been shared on social media showing the fiery aftermath.
The driver of the SHOCKWAVE Jet Truck, 40-year-old Chris Darnell, was killed. His father, Neal Darnell, explained the accident as the result of mechanical failure. “We were just having fun flying our planes and we’re just trying to make the air show as exciting as possible,” said Darnell.
The explosion happened during a Battle Creek air show, where the Shockwave Jet Truck was scheduled to perform stunts and fly over the crowd. After launching, the vehicle flipped, catching fire and exploding into a fiery blaze. “It was a terrifying scene for me,” said Bryan Lacic, who witnessed the accident. Police and fire officials are investigating the cause of the accident.
The rest of the air show has been postponed. The accident is being investigated by the Battle Creek Fire Department and the Battle Creek Police Department. The Shockwave Jet Truck was built by Darnell Racing Enterprises, a Missouri company. It was designed to reach speeds of over 350 mph.
The crash has led to a cancellation of the rest of the air show and music performances that were set to occur on Saturday. The event will resume on Sunday. The Battle Creek Police Department will continue to investigate the cause of the crash. The Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show is a five-day festival that features a variety of performers, hot air balloons, and fireworks.
Thunderbirds to perform at air show
Every year in the Battle Creek, Michigan, area, there is an air show and hot air balloon festival called the Battle Creek Field of Flight. Voted one of the top air shows in the country, this event features military and civil aircraft, live entertainment, a carnival, and two fireworks displays. It is an ideal way to spend a sunny summer day or an autumn evening. The Thunderbirds are one of the more popular and iconic performers, and they are always a hit with the crowd.
The show is free to the public, and the Thunderbirds have a long tradition of performing at air shows. Each year, the group performs a spectacular performance with their famous aerobatics. The show is also a chance for the public to see the world’s most famous pilots in action.
The Thunderbirds have performed in over 35 different locations in the United States, and they will once again thrill air showgoers with their dazzling shows. The US Air Force Thunderbirds’ schedule begins in February with a flyover at the Daytona 500. Then they continue with shows at various venus throughout the United States from March to November. The Thunderbirds represent more than 500,000 active-duty airmen.
The United States Air Force Thunderbirds will make a return visit to the Battle Creek Field of Flight Air Show in 2022. The Thunderbirds will fly multiple times during the show to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the U.S. Air Force. The event is one of the oldest and most well-known air shows in Michigan. The Thunderbirds represent nearly 700,000 Airmen on active duty, and those on active-duty overseas.
Among the many military demonstrations at the air show, the F-35 Lightning II Demonstration Team will be flying for the first time ever.

The demonstration will include low and high-speed passes at speeds below supersonic.
The F-35 Lightning II Demonstrate Team from the U.S. Navy was also in attendance. They were performing for the first time in Michigan. This was also the first time the U.S. Navy had flown the aircraft, so it was a unique opportunity for fans of the aircraft.
The USAF F-35 Demo Team is one of the most exciting single-ship demonstrations at an air show. The jet features amazing aerobatic capabilities and an integrated avionics system. It is also a stealthy fighter that can perform air-to-ground missions.
In addition to the Thunderbirds, the F-35 Lightning II Demonstrate Team will be performing in multiple shows at Battle Creek Executive Airport throughout the week. They are scheduled to perform over 70 times, representing the pride and service of our nation.
