Getting a closer look at this weekend’s Air and Water Show

Here’s an up close look at the planes that flew over the Chicago skyline

This summer’s Chicago Air and Water Show was an impressive one and brought tremendous crowds to the city’s lakefront. Fortunately, many attendees shared some pretty spectacular photos of the event on social media. However, if you missed it the show or just couldn’t get a good look at the planes, here’s a very up close and personal look at some of the machines that were flying over the Chicago skyline this past weekend.


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.
