Severe thunderstorms warnings were issued Sunday morning throughout the Chicago area and neighboring counties.
But once skies cleared, the show went on as planned – with flights by the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, the Royal Air Force Red Arrows, and the U.S. Army Golden Knights.
“The weather threw us for a bit of a loop but nice work everyone on keeping it together to give this great city a great show,” the show’s staff said on Facebook.
