The Air and Water Show Screams into Chicago

If it sounds like an air raid downtown, it’s that time of year again, a magic weekend when the blood pressure of every downtown office worker spikes.

Having a bit of the trainspotter in me (I do live near a massive Metra roundhouse, though not close enough to really appreciate the sounds), I’ve always thought it would be interesting to live in Clearing or Jamaica, New York, in the shadow of a major airport. Then the Air & Water Show comes to town.

 

(It’s tough, actually. I try to envision myself as Edward R. Murrow.)

 

 

I do, however, always look forward to the pictures.

But as someone from a boating family, I’m always surprised that the Water part doesn’t get more love. I demand more of this:
