I had an aunt and uncle that lived near O'Hare when I was little. I loved how the house rattled whenever a plane went over head, which was very often.
I also, grew up in the flight path of the Great Lakes Naval Base. I loved watching those HUGE planes flying over head. You could hear their rumble long before you could see them.
And because of where I grew up, half way between Milwaukee and Chicago, way western Kenosha County, during extra busy times, or holidays, we were in the over flow flight paths of both of those airports.
