Vince Vaughn to Skydive Into Chicago Air & Water Show

Vince Vaughn will team up with the U.S. Army Golden Knights to kick-off the 52nd Annual Chicago Air & Water Show. Saturday, August 14th at 11:00am Vaughn will descend towards North Avenue Beach in a tandem skydive with the Golden Knights.

Vaughn will experience the exhilaration of a jump from 12,500 feet and a free fall with speeds exceeding 120 MPH. He will be in good hands as the Golden Knights have performed tandem jumps with other celebrities and dignitaries including Bill Murray, two years ago in Chicago, and George H.W. Bush.

Vaughn who is spotted often in Chicago has been in town most recently filming Ron Howard's The Dilemma.

Excellent! Vince Vaughn! I have seen pix of Bill Murray in the plane, about to head out, and he looks psyched, but a little scared! Dropping out of a plane at that height takes some guts. We'll be watching on Sat. Thanks for posting all this great info!

Was the Sunday show different? Seemed like a long delay between 2 and 3 PM. And the Blue Angels were in a 3 flight "diamond". What's up with that?
