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.

Great onboard of Blue #5. Check out the comms, lot's to learn from these guys if you're thinking on running your own team!
I am an accountant working full-time (and some). I'm not here as often as I would like to be. Send a message if you need me. There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

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??

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

Quite the catch of this L-100. Epic vapour vortices coming off the props as the sunlight illuminates them when it passes by the videograopher.

Pretty cool farewell video by United for the last remaining 747-400s (last 747s period) in its fleet.

About 2 months ago i posted a few pictures of the Chicago Air & Water Show (a few posts above). Unfortunately, I had little to no space left on my iPhone to take pictures/videos so I took what I could. Here is the video with the F-22 Raptor and Blue Angels taken from the 99th story of the Willis tower (2nd tallest in US, 16th in the world). Probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen.

On October 20, 2017 Tom Morgan of Bristol, England reached heights of 8,000ft (2,438m) using 100 color helium balloons and has flown 25km (15.5 miles) over South Africa.

I don't know what's happened to it but the video isn't showing up in the post, even with the right link (updated it after seeing the above post).
