This is raw footage from a 90-minute helicopter ride around Chicago — from Hyde Park to Wilmette.
In this segment we start west of the Gold Coast and fly around downtown, across Grant Park and out to Navy Pier.
Joe and Jordan Zekas and our ace photographer Michael Kardas took off from Schaumburg earlier today and buzzed around Chicagoland, circling and going over the Loop half a dozen times along the way, shooting video and stills.
Check back in a few days for much more video, and head to YoChicago and Flickr for some of Kardas’ sure-to-be dazzling photos.
Many thanks to our great pilot Alan Muir of Schaumburg-based AM Air Service.
