I went out for lunch today around 12:30 and immediately heard the sound of military jets roaring overhead. I flinched and looked around for a second before I realized that is was the USAF Thunderbirds. Today they began practice over the city in preparation for the Air & Water Show this weekend in Chicago.
My friend Eric and I ate our lunch outdoors and caught glimpses of them between the buildings around us. We then headed up to the 37th floor balcony of our building and watched from there. Eric even snapped a few good pictures of the jets swooping between the buildings.
Tomorrow, I'll try to get some of my own pictures and post them here.
