Air Force Thunderbirds

Chicago Air and Water Show

by Administrator on August 17, 2009

We made it out to the Chicago Air and Water Show. The 2009 show was the 51st, with last year celebrating the 50th year of the tradition which began as a simple event in 1959. The current event is held at North Avenue Beach. If the water show parts really interest you, you have to get to the beach early and absolutely stake out a location on North Avenue Beach. For the air part, the show is visible in part or in its entirety from most places in the city along the shoreline or from lake facing buildings. As always, the Thunderbirds were the hit of the show this year. Also participating were teams from Aeroshell, Lima Lima, Sean Tucker and Team Oracle and a great deal more. August, 2009 Photos
