Northern Illinois Airshow – Wings Over Waukegan

​We picked Max up after school on Friday and then on Saturday we all went to the Northern Illinois Airshow at Waukegan National Airport. We got to the airport a couple hours before the actual airshow was to start, set up lawn chairs to save out spot and then walked around the grounds to see the […]

AirVenture 2015 – Part 3

Friday – Seaplane Base I hopped a shuttle bus out to the seaplane base Friday morning. It is always much more peaceful out there, away from the crowd at the main show grounds. Still, there were more people there than I have seen on any previous visit. Maybe the word is getting out.   There […]

Wings Over Waukegan

Saturday was a great day for an airshow. Blue skies with some puffy clouds provided a beautiful background for the aircraft in flight over the Waukegan airport. The 70 degree temperature and a brisk breeze made it cool out on the ramp but I prefer that to sweltering in the heat. All the pilots handled […]
