On 11 September we flew over the Hudson, but the sun was going down fast. As a result, none of us had decent pictures.

So today we are looking at a nice airshow with free food and drinks; horrible ;-)

We’re back in the air on route to Niagara Falls. But first we have to get away from Chicago. It was an interesting moment when we came into this airport due to the size of this place and the amount of traffic that’s using this airport. Today it’s busy again; this airport handles a lot of traffic of Southwest and then there are these small planes as well. Interesting to see a big plane waiting for a small Cessna taking of.
