    Here's one for flight simulator fans.

    The former Meigs Field was the default airport in early versions Flight Simulator for many years. One night in March 2003 Mayor Daley ordered city workers to bulldoze the runway stranding 16 aircraft. Soldier Field, the Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and Adler Planetarium are also featured in this video.

    That is right. In the original Microsoft Flight simulator Meigs Field was the default.
    One day I had the chance to visit the actual location. It was very interesting to see it in real.
    Also checked out the Planetarium and Sears Tower, we could see airplanes flying from above.
    Thanks for posting this video.
