We finally got to see some of the Chicago Air and Water show this year, in mid-August. It was the 50th anniversary and it was quite a spectacle! The beach was packed–and I do mean PACKED!–with spectators. We walked for miles! Anyway, it was a neat show, even though we cut out a little early to make it to a friend’s party–only to be too pooped and sun sick to go to the party.
Here’s a quick video of the somewhat ominous B-22 Stealth Bomber in action!
And the Blue Angels closed the show but we missed most of that in our haste to get to the train. Dale took this photo from his office window. We were both treated to a Blue Angels rehearsal show in the two days leading up to the main event. If you click on this photo you can see the logos on the plane.
