Wow, that is cool! We used to watch the planes on Mannheim Road near O’Hare before they banned stopping there… it was a fun thing to do in the summer time. Of course, those were only commercial jets and the occasional 747, nothing like this! I think we also went to Glenview Naval Airbase and hung out during the Chicago Air Show one year and saw some cool stuff taking off. That base is long gone, but at least there is a D’Agostino’s Pizza where the base once was… so something good came of it!
