Interesting picture. You can easily identify that this is Chicago because of the cool grid structure.

An amazing pictue of an amazing city. Even more amazing is the clarity of the wing versus the lights in the background. Chicago is truly amazing. It would be a dream to live near ORD and see just about every kind of jet imaginable. Kudos on the shot!

Very nice. I've got a few nearly identical view of the Chicago street grid from the 95th floor lounge of the Hancock Bldg (without the wing, obviously!), so I knew the location immediately. A fantastic view on a clear night from either vantage point!

As a photographer, this is brilliant! I can tell you are flying over Chicago at night. No blur on the wing! Nice motion blur on the city below!

Excellent photograph. I recently took off during the evening on a 757 from Chicago en route to Philly and it was one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen. I've seen plenty of cities from the air, but Chicago takes the cake thus far.

Anyone thinking of Tron: Legacy? The blurred lights look like the illuminated lights and lines of the Grid.
