Chicago Air & Water Show - USAF Thunderbirds 2011

Not a lot of good videos of the Chicago show, but it's understandable when the showline is so removed from the crowd. (Over a mile? It was hard to see anything where I sat in the bay). Very nice day to watch an airshow, however, but I would give anything to be on those boats out there!

Wonder how much of their show/repos have to be adjusted for the skyline. I know a bunch of the Blues' stuff has to be moved. (Nothing the untrained eye would notice, but none the less changes).

Chicago is a very "bleh" show to view from the beach. As Silent said above, the showline is pushed out a ways and the sight lines are bad crowd right if you're sitting at CP. Not to mention, getting in and out of the show is completely FUBAR.
