Chicago Aerial Photography
Walking up to the helicopter, I felt the tremble of the blades hit my stomach. I could barely hear myself think, but there was not much thought going through my head at the moment. Anticipation, yes. I quickly put on my headset and I felt the helicopter slowly lift off of the ground. As our pilot was describing what we were flying over, I was speechless. I would glance out the window and immediately remember walking down that exact street. The city lights, resembling a million fireflies floating above the city, sparkled as we flew by. This was Chicago. The tourist snapping photos of us as we passed the Sky Deck, while Navy Pier was illuminating the darkness of the lake. From the bustling of the Chicago grid to the calmness of Lake Michigan, the energy of this city seemed endless. This was an unforgettable experience and I couldn’t say enough great things about the Chicago Helicopter Express. As we landed, I realized that there was only one problem. I was going to go home in a car and not 1000 ft in the air.
