Chicago Air Show

After looking at some of the other threads here, one's almost reluctant to do another air show thread, but I already uploaded the shots. So here goes anyway. Went to see my family in Chicago last weekend and we go to the show every year. It's right downtown on the beach. Lot's of fun.





C-17 leaving. Poorly shot, but I liked the scene.



Blue Angels arriving. Stars of the show. The girl almost made me think she thought I was taking her picture. I still like it though.

Re: Chicago Air Show

Always good fun but not as many as there used to be in my neck of the woods
Great shots of the Blue Angels, saw them over here many years ago and was very impressed with their tight formations

Re: Chicago Air Show

Thank you Jake. We did lose all local shows in St Louis for a few years, but they restored the one for the fourth of July. Ours at the air force base near me in Illinois has continued. They're nice, but not large.The one in Chicago is huge. It draws over two million people and is the largest free show in the country.

Re: Chicago Air Show

Thanks all. The Blue Angels did a fine show and moved fast enough to present some challenges. Thankfully conditions improved a little during their segment.

Yes free Jake. It's on the beach on Lake Michigan with Lake Shore Drive and the downtown core behind you. Some of the acts actually fly between skyscrapers on their turnarounds. Take a cooler, grill, an umbrella, camera, and swimsuit. Some of the swimsuits you see can divert you from the airplanes. After all it is the beach. If you like you can swim and watch the show at the same time. Great all day fun. Photo opportunities are boundless. I took nearly 4000 shots in four days around town and at the show. If anyone cares, I can put up some more.
