Stay away from the lake when this high-flying event comes to town. If you really need to get your "woosh" fix in, find a friend with rooftop access nearby. I like planes as much as anyone, but I wouldn't say the spectacle of manned flight is worth sifting through a crowd of people who are trying to find meaning to life in a summertime lakefront sky.
