Here's an old picture from 1987 of the Air and Water Show taken from the 100th floor of the Sears tower jk i took it yesterday look at the trump tower

Also, I have video of this next shot (as well as much more video of other things). The Blues look pretty close here, but as you should know with photography (especially with the iPhone), things in the picture seem farther away than real life. This is absolutely true. They came within a few hundred feet of the willis tower. So epic! I'll put the video up of the blues as well as the F-22 raptor. I only had 200 MB on my phone left so i was only able to get about 2 min of the F-22 and 2 min of the blues...

Nice! Looks like a great spot. We will have to get on top of the John Hancock Tower next time.

Just saw this uploaded on one of my favourite channels, VASAviation. This one is a special ops video covering about 30 minutes of Embry Riddle Evacuation flights from DAB. Quite interesting indeed!


Is it just me or do I hear our very own VNAF at 4:11 and then again at about 9:34??
Check out my YSFS videos on my Youtube channel!

My general rant: I will call them blended winglets, not Sharklets; There is no CEO, it's just simply put, an Airbus 319/320/321, or the 320NEO, 321NEO etc. I didn't land IN OKC, I landed AT OKC. On the other hand, I did land in Oklahoma City.

I guess this is a fairly good substitute for a carrier experience.

From description of this video: "But it worked - thanks to an amazing aircraft, the STOL Aeroprakt Foxbat A22."

FAQ - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroprakt_A-22_Foxbat

No matter is it big as Antonov An-225 or small as Aeroprakt A-22, every aircraft produced in Ukraine is amazing aircraft! ;-)

P.S.: Coming soon for YSFlight too - viewtopic.php?t=8109
