Air and Water Show 2013

Close formation practice between Fullerton and Diversey (JWB Photo)

The big lakefront event of the year is at hand – for over a half-century now the Air and Water Show has been drawing folks to the area surrounding the North Avenue beach.  Despite the sequestration’s kibosh on the big boys in the fast jets, this year’s show promises to attract over two million visitors to the lakefront.

I can hear propeller planes running through their part of the show even as I write this.

The event is so popular that even the geese are practicing their close formation drills.

One rarely sees the ducks out on the lake in a row. Great photo!
