Some Chicago Air and Water Show Trivia
The Chicago Air and Water Show began in 1959 as a “Family Day” celebration for kids in the Chicago Park District’s day camp program.
• The original event was budgeted at a whopping $88, and consisted mainly of a Coast Guard Air Sea Rescue demonstration, water skiing, and diving competitions.
• In 1960, the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds and Golden Knights Parachute Team performed to a huge crowd and the event became a Chicago summer tradition.
• Today, the Chicago Air & Water Show has grown so big that it employs its own air traffic controller who oversees the downtown air space during show hours.
• Planes take off and land at the Gary/Chicago International Airport in Gary, Indiana. All stunts are performed over the water, but planes often buzz the Chicago skyline in the path back to the show area or the airport.
