When these planes zoom over the buildings it's really loud on the sidewalk. It's even louder when you're up on one of the building roofs. Usually I flinch and cover my ears (not always -- just when they fly directly over the roof). This time I wanted a photo.

It's hurt-your-ears loud. But really so fun to see them so close.

Oh, just so you know. It's Chicago Air Show Weekend and that means we get treated to three days of practice flyovers in addition to the official shows on Saturday and Sunday. OK, I might be one of the few that considers five days of demonstration jets and bombers, acrobatic fighters, and parachute jumpers a treat ;)

You sure know how to shoot these types of photos.
