We will be there Saturday for sure. I have been throwing the hook in the same spot for a long time.
Perfect spot right where the planes break out over the water, full banked, full afterburn, cool stuff you can see the pilots face!! Look for me just south of the north street beach building right about on top of the flight line. Kind of strange to say but lets hope for flat water

I almost forgot about the show. Thanks for reminding me. I will be there. If we can catch some big air at high speed in our boats does that qualify as an air show?

NASCAR??? AIRSHOW???? what to do??? I may have tickets to NASCAR, I will know the first of next week, if not I will trailer to MI City and run across. It is a short jog from there and you can see the city from there. Look for a 20ft Zodiac with an M50 mounted on the bow. I hope I don't get hassled by the Man!!!! Something about Homeland Security, I don't know, seems like a big mole hill from an ant hill.

Don't worry Mitch, they'll be cool with that. It's Chicago!

Airshow Friday & Saturday! Nascar Sunday! GFS gave me a pair of tickets to the race. Looking forward to my first Nascar race. Any idea where to stay close to the track?
