HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Selfridge Air National Guard Base plans to mark its 100th anniversary in August 2017 with an air show featuring the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds.

The appearance is planned as part of the 2017 Selfridge Open House, which will celebrate the heritage of the base in Macomb County’s Harrison Township. The 127th Wing says the air show will include a variety of current and historical aircraft.

The suburban Detroit base was established July 1, 1917 amid World War I.

Additional events to mark the centennial will be announced later this year. They’re expected to include ceremonies, a museum display and the publishing of a book.
