I'm also 16... I live in the suburbs of Chicago... near Skokie, Evanston, Niles and Des Plaines. It's awesome, sometimes at 7:00 in the morning, i'll see a UA
733 landing right above me and at my neighbour's house, they get to see the intl departures so i can easily indentify Iberia, Air France, KLM, Swiss, BA
( saw a 777 land while i was in class). It's so cool living in Chicago.
