This little video montage is from my flight last week over the Detroit Tigers game in Detroit, MI. Some of the highlights included seeing an F-18 do an aerial demonstration over the boat races, the downtown skyline of Detroit, Ford Field and of course Comerica Park, home of the Tigers. It was a fun day over the ballpark taking in my first flight over the city of Detroit. We could even take a peek into Canada as we flew around since the Canadian city of Windsor, ON is just across the river. It may just be the proximity to Canada, but I never realized how similar Detroit is to Buffalo.

Here are a few pictures I took while in Detroit this past weekend. A few of them are of some cool clouds around sunset and the others are of the Detroit Tigers game I flew on Sunday. I'll have some more video to post later on this week from the flight once we get to New York and I get a chance to edit it all together.

I finally finished my video montage of last weekend's visit to Chicago, IL. You'll see all of the tourist sights in this video including Wrigley Field, Naval Pier, the Chicago Skyline, etc. Chicago is a fun town to visit. The view from the air is hard to beat but there is a lot to explore on the ground as well. The view from the 96th floor of the Hancock Building was impressive even for a guy who's seen the city from a blimp.

We just finished up our 4th of July weekend stay in Chicago and were able to make the hop to Detroit without any issues yesterday. While I was in Chicago I was able to get a ton of video footage from the air and the ground. It will probably take me a little while to get that done though so I have posted a few preview pictures here until I can get the video edited and posted. Some of the highlights include the fabulous Chicago skyline, Navy Pier and of course Wrigley Field. We were able to get two out of the three Cubs games in during our visit, and we had a blast doing them.

I just finished editing the second part of my three part series of videos from my recent visit to the Old Bethpage Village Restoration Museum. In this installment, we continue touring the various buildings that make up the village and learn a little more about life on Long Island in the 1800's.
