Moshpix: Millions of people converged on Chicago's lakefront over the weekend for the 53rd Annual Chicago Air and Water Show. Sunday's show went off without a hitch, with performances by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds, and the U.S. Navy Leap Frogs Parachute Team, but Saturday's show was condensed after thunderstorms ripped across the area. An estimated 2.2 million people were expected to witness the show's aerobatic thrills. Photos courtesy Jon Recana Photography.
