2016 Chicago Air and Water Show

28 Aug

Last weekend was the Chicago Air and Water show. It was my first time seeing this particular show in person and I was not let down.  Always great to see fighter jets buzzing over your head.

The show started with some aerial acrobatics over the water. I was amazed at how in control, but out of control these guys were

A Navy F/A-18 flew over for a bit. Pretty awesome to see this thing fly straight up.

Army and Navy jumpers began hopping out of a C-130.

Then the show closed with the Air Force Thunderbirds. Definitely the highlight of the show.
