Attendance numbers aren’t out just yet, but previous year’s shows have had head counts in the two million range. Hordes of people packed in at North Avenue Beach to get a good look at the planes and participating in this year's show. Highlights included the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, the U.S. Army Parachute Team Golden Knights, and a first time Chicago Air and Water show appearance of the F-35 Heritage Flight Team. While the weather caused delays and impeded views on Saturday, the skies were clear on Sunday, offering a crystal clear view of the show for those gathered along the city's beaches.
