This picture was taken while we were holding before the start of out act at the Chicago Air & Water Show back in the late 1990’s.
Please notice what once was the jewel of the Chicago lakefront…Meigs Field. It served Chicago from 1948 through March of 2003 when it was bulldozed by the then Mayor Daley. It sure would be nice to have a place to land if you had engine troubles…just saying.

Hi John –
I hope you and your crew enjoyed your time in Ann Arbor this past weekend. It was one of the most memorable games in the history of the Michigan – Ohio State rivalry, and we were glad to have you a part of it. From myself and Ryan, please pass along our thanks for a job well done. Both the flyover and halftime looked great.
We look forward to working with you for future events.
