Remark Photographer
N529UA (cn 25019/352) "United 764 heavy, cleared to land runway 27 right. Caution, American MD-80 is on your 10 o'clock toward the parallel runway 27 left." "Okay sir. We are in sight." After smooth flight from Dallas Fort Worth for two hours, we are welcomed by the beautiful setting sun over the Lake Michigan. From our port side window, we could see a wonderful view of downtown Chicago skyline and shoreline. Sears Tower nicely stands out. Famous "Windy City" seems to be damn calm this afternoon.

Really a nice shot that captures the intricate air traffic around Chicago.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 23, 2006:

I had fond memories like this of my flights to Chicago's O'Hare and the skyline.

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 20, 2006:
Great shot

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 11, 2006:
Beautiful shot of the Windy City. Man, I love Chicago. I remember driving into the city and just seeing the Sears Tower materialize out of the fog. Just stunning. Unfortunately, that same fog obstructed the view flying in to the city. Chicago, if you get a chance, visit it and have a ball.

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 11, 2006:
Always a welcome home sight when I see it

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue March 7, 2006:
An Excellent Photograoh

A visitor from Poland posted Mon February 13, 2006:
Nice shot i love the way you managed to capture most of the known landmarks chicago is known for in one shot.

A visitor from Poland posted Mon February 13, 2006:
I love this shot, since I'm a Chicagoan, and it truly captures the spirit of Chicago. You can clearly see the begining of Lake Shore Drive and downtown.

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 7, 2006:
If I'm not mistaken, I was on that AA MD-80 and saw this United 757 at my two o'clock. Strange how things like that can happen. Great shot.

A visitor from Slovenia posted Sun February 5, 2006:
Nice pics where nice color

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 28, 2006:
SPECTACULAR! Michigan Ave and the beaches on the lake are awesome at sunset. You captured this moment beautifully!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 15, 2005:
Great shot !!!! Love the late afternoon haze and detail of the city.

A visitor from Spain posted Wed December 14, 2005:
Beautiful picture. That cold look makes me feel like wanting to arrive home and have a hot chocolate!

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Great pic. i go 2 chicago eavry summer and i have never had a landing like this. once again great picture.

A visitor from Finland posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Really beautiful picture!! And about the "heavy" thing, ATC can and should use the heavy suffix also for the 757-200. The heavy is used for aircrafts 136,000kg and over. 757-200 isn't so heavy, but the wing of -200 series creates such a strong wing tip vortices that ATC also uses heavy for 757-200.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat November 26, 2005:
I seen the same view several years ago but not with that sunset.Brings back memories of my holiday.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Wonderful description!

A visitor from Spain posted Sat November 26, 2005:
The comments are just as good as the picture itself

thank you!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat November 26, 2005:
The View and detail in the pic is amazaing, fantastic shot of a fantastic place

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Awesome photo, I like how the brown autumn trees compliment the lighting.

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 26, 2005:
I have seen Chicago at street level, but never like this, and I also cant afford to.
Thanks Jean

A visitor from Singapore posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Sears Tower is the tallest building in USA.

A visitor from Japan posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Very cool picture

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 25, 2005:
Brilliant clarity for such a detailed photo. For Chicago, a very clear sky & perfect time of day. My apartment is in the middle ground, just west of the harbor!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 24, 2005:
Great picture with wonderful light! Thanks for sharing! Tony

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 24, 2005:
The sun is beautiful!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 24, 2005:
Great picture. One comment regarding the caption, though. The B-757-200 is not a heavy aircraft in the ATC system, only the -300 series is. Chicago Approach would not have used the heavy suffix with the UAL764 callsign.
