Today's storm delayed the start of the 2011 Air & Water Show, but the show will go on in full when the skies are clear. That's good news for the hundreds of thousands who camp out for the best spots at the beaches. In the meantime, we have all seen, or at least heard, the jets practicing this week. Here are some shots of the practices from the Chicagoist Flick pool to give you a taste of what's going on out there. The noise may be disruptive, but the planes are still pretty damn cool.
