Chicago Clout at the Chicago Air and Water Show 2011

Chicago Air and Water Show 2011/ Chicago Clout This is one of many photos I took at the City of Chicago Air and Water Show practice 2011. I used to go to the Jardine Plant as a City of Chicago employee but I think the practice has ended. Now, I hop on my boat, exit Diversey Harbor and get right underneath the aircraft. It is an amazing sight to get so close; the planes skim right over the water. There are many Police and Coast Guard Boats patrolling the area. I have some more photos I am thinking of sharing. Maybe Rahm Emanuel can ride the planes and then declare “Mission Accomplished” with the City Budget soon. Just an idea. Photo by Patrick McDonough
