Blue Angels Headline 2014 Chicago Air and Water Show

2014_chicago_air_water_show.jpgThe 2014 Chicago Air & Water Show roars back to life this week. The 56th Chicago Air & Water Show will feature the return of military acts that missed last year's show due to sequestration. Crowd favorites the U.S. Navy Blue Angels will be the headline act, supported by the U.S. Army Golden Knights, U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor and MV-22 Osprey. Although the military performances get much of the attention, the Chicago Air & Water Show has another stellar line-up of civilian performers and teams including Sean D. Tucker, Team Aeroshell, Chuck Aaron and the Red Bull Helicopter, Team Aerostars and the Warbird Heritage Museum foundation A-4 Skyhawk.

New to the Chicago Air & Water Show in 2014 is Team AeroDynamix, the largest aerobatic team in the world flying 12 RV-8, RV-7, and RV-8a kitplanes. We are scheduled to fly with them on Thursday and will share some photos and videos later in the week.

We have prepared our 2014 Chicago Air & Water Show guide which includes information on the performers and tips on the best places to watch the Chicago Air & Water Show. The city is expecting approximately two million people to come out this year, but if you are not a fan of big crowds we recommend checking out the Friday practice show. Teams will run their full performances in preparation for the weekend show. The practice show and the weekend shows will begin around 10am and run through 3pm with the finale being the performance by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels.

This year AT&T is planning to make sure the tweets, instagrams and Facebook posts of the millions enjoying the show can be shared with millions more. AT&T is testing a temporary antenna to boost signal in the area so your messages don't time out. Paul Biasco of DNAInfo reports that AT&T installed an 18-beam Luneburg Lens Antenna last week in preparation for the Chicago Air & Water Show. "It's the first time they have deployed the device anywhere in the country to combat what they call the 'look at me' or 'look where I am' effects."

Though, if you really want to capture the sights at the Chicago Air & Water Show we recommend this airshow photography guide to help you make the most of your photos from the event.

Its going to be an amazing Chicago Air show this year. Although we may not be on the show ticket, the All Veteran Parachute Team will be at Chicago Air show again this year! Yes, thats right, 3 parachute demonstration teams! I don't think this has ever happened at an air show. Not just any parachute teams, the premiere 3 teams!!

As a blogger myself I understand the centrality of showcasing. I have made articles that I felt were bewildering yet very few people read them. Contrasting times I have amassed articles that for no good reason rank well in web pursue mechanical congregations and are investigated by hundreds more people. SEO is undeniably a subject every web business visionary needs to examine about!

I always enjoy any air show or any activity where I can get close to airplanes. Pilots are the most interesting people in the world.
