Air and Water



At the risk of sounding incredibly smug, I would like to say that I am lucky enough to “know a guy” here in Chicago who lives in an apartment on the 53rd floor of a building reasonably close to the city center. Here’s his view on a good day.


No bad. Here’s his view during the annual Chicago Air and Water show.


Dramatic.


Last Sunday we stopped in to take in the sights of this fine city, though regrettably naptime overlapped with the Blue Angels and we missed what I’m told was a rather intense flyby. 


Maybe next year. 



p.s. check out this kickstarter if you haven't already.

Very cool! I don't know what you'd call a view that's better than front row seats, but that's what it looks like!

Bummer that you missed the Blue Angels. I once had the good fortune to be taking a tour of Alcatraz when they were out practicing for an air show. It was like being in a Michael Bay movie!

Wow, Brian, that is a fantastic view! What a great occasion! Hope you and yours are well and doing fine, Sir.

Not a bad view at all. And the architecture in Chicago looks fantastic.

@ 40K Giveaway. It was like nothing I've ever experienced before.

@ Alex. Apparently, they buzzed the balcony of that place. I am still sore about missing that.

@ Sir Roundwood. Thank you very much. My very best to you and yours as well. All is really quite well here in Chicago.

@ Rogue Pom. I am hopelessly biased in this capacity (born and bread Chigcao, me -though I've moved around a bit), but it's a good old town. I recommend it.
