The Chicago Air & Water Show gives me a great chance to watch jets in our skies over the city. I have a good view from my balcony and friends of ours have an awesome view from atop their building near the lake. On Saturday (day one) I took a few photos from my balcony and on Sunday I got some from my friends’ deck.
I will just let the pictures speak for themselves.

What is the water part of the show? Do they have coast guard vessels or something?
IIRC they used to have Coast Guard rescue demonstrations, as well as a rowing contest for the local lifeguards. For all I know they now have Mayor Daley on a jet ski. Nobody ever attended the show to watch the water part.
Balcony! Spoiled yuppie :)
The right hand photo in the third row shows some old war birds. They look like T 6s. Any others in the show ?
They did not have a lot of the older planes in the show, mostly newer planes and then the stunt planes.
I can never see the water because you have to get out there early and sit all day and I just wait for the later jets and like taking photos among the big buildings.
Some years back I went to a Chicago Air and Water Show party. A physician that I knew had a condo in a building overlooking the lake. Amazing seeing all that from so high up.
