Look! Up In The Sky! It's A Bird! It's A Plane!
Several readers have told us that they saw a helicopter, possibly two, fly over Cricket Hill and land there around 4:30 this afternoon. Looks like the one pictured is in the Wilson Skate Park, where Marine One and its two buddies landed when Obama was here in 2011.
So the question is, who was here and why did he or she arrive via helicopter? Anyone know?
Update: The helicopters (technically not helicopters, but Bell Boeing V-22 Ospreys) were spotted flying all over town. The consensus is that they are having a trial run for the visit of President Obama to Chicago. He'll be at two fundraisers here, on the Gold Coast and in Lincoln Park, on Thursday night and will depart on Friday. Probably not a good idea to plan on using the Wilson Skate Park much Thursday and Friday.
