|Quoting EWRandMDW (Thread starter):|
These were not flights heading east out of Midway. Those planes were considerably lower in altitude than the ones I'm referring to.
I have flown that departure from MDW
many times, once MDW
ferrying a 752. I saw my apartment complex, plus the ride up the lake shore is awesome. I didn't get to ride in the flight deck too often, so it was a treat.
-80s kind of blow the departure [from MDW
] theory too. Maybe they are flying that approach to ORD
and heading out over the lake for some spacing/timing issues?
