  • 2010 Chicago Air & Water Show

    Posted by Carl from Chicago on August 20th, 2010 (All posts by )

    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?

    3. Jonathan Says:

      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 ?

    6. Carl from Chicago Says:

      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.

      Nice photos.

      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.
