We got passes to the Chicago Air and Water show sponsor's hospitality area again and it was a lovely Saturday. We had been getting excited for the show as the Blue Angels had been practicing their maneuvers Thursday and Friday, turning around to go back up the shore over our house. The girls and I ran outside each day, up to the top deck of the building and watched them zoom by.
We got there just before they started serving lunch so we grabbed some water and popcorn and headed to the beach for seats.
parachuters in the opening act hit a building and later died from his injuries. We got there about 45 minutes after the show started and fortunately missed watching that happen. Such a sad and tragic accident.
