Waukegan, IL Air Show 2009
September 19, 2009 
This was my first time to Waukegan and it will not be my last.  This is a great little one day show that has been in existence since 2001 with a year out in 2008 due to the economy.  This year it was back with a three hour flying show that included a good selection of warbirds, many of which were new to me or I had not seen in a long time.  According to the Lake County News-Sun the show made a contribution of $18,025.62 to the Navy Leagues Returning Warrior program.  This was possible by for the first time charging a small $5 entry fee.  Waukegan is just a few miles from the Great Lakes Naval Station (Now Chicago Naval Station) so there is a large navy presence in the area.  The 2010 show is tentatively scheduled for September 11.  Put it on your calendars.
