Looks like the plane is making a sharp turn.

Shoot an e-mail to Orlando (the photographer) and ask, I ma sure he will be more than happy to give an answer.

In the description he says he used a 135 mm telephoto lens. That's plenty of magnification, isn't it? Anyway, flying between Denver and Newark, one certainly ought to be at cruise altitude when over Chicago, right?

Here is a similar picture from a similar height, but with a straighter angle:
