The stunts skyway Field Flight 2011 Air Show & Balloon Festival has its official start on Saturday morning as a biplane with the words “Air Show” in columns of smoke and the national anthem was sung by the speaker system WK Kellogg Airport the festival grounds.

It was a bright blue cloudless sky for the full lineup of artists pitch-and-roll, including the U.S. Hornets Navy Blue Angels’ F/A-18.

“What an absolutely beautiful blue tarp that is the painting of today, the people,” said an announcer on the air show as “Mr. Air Show” Gene Soucy out in your biplane ShowCat.

A more than usual spectator section in the event of decades-old battle Creek makes an almost larger than life breathtaking view, goes round and round, making dips, close call, go zoom and artists jumping vehicles traveling on airplanes and perform stunts while standing on the wings.

“Wow!” Said of Vandermeer Otsego Ethan, 5, peering through the hip, black sunglasses, earmuffs covered with large, like a trick-art rose to the heavens before falling down.

What is the best part of the air show?

“Everything, so far,” said Ethan’s father, Shawn Vandermeer, 33. “Just being here with him.”

The air show continues today and Monday. The Blue Angels performed their last concert today. The air sample starts at 11 am every day of the festival open at 10 am
