2017 Chicago Air & Water show

Postby sovietjet on Sun 11 Nov 2018, 6:16 pm

A bit delayed on this, but better late than never. The Chicago air show takes place over North avenue beach, and the aircraft all fly over Lake Michigan. This created some nice opportunities with the helicopters and the Harrier. The crowds are huge and annoying though, so it's not the most pleasant experience. Some of these photos are from Gary airport, where all the aircraft were staging from. The rest are from the show itself.

Nice set of photos, Ivan. The Blue Angels and the Harrier shots are the stand out pics for me. :cool:

A very nice set Ivan. The show looks a little out of the ordinary, and I enjoyed browsing through your set.
its time to kick the tyres and light the fires

Great stuff. Thought the Blue Angels were good then I saw number 16 of the AV-8B - a Picture of the week contender.
