Chicago's Midway Airport. Chicago Illinois. Early November 2007., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.
I was doing a little morning line side railfanning on the nearby Belt Railway of Chicago, when I heard the sound of this approaching photo opportunity between freight trains.
Looking west from the West 55th Street railroad crossing east of South Cicero Avenue, we see a commercial jet airplane coming in for a landing at Chicago's Midway Airport on the southwest side of the city.
Opened in 1926, this airport was originally known as Chicago Municipal Airport. In 1949, this facility was renamed Midway Airport, after the 1942 Allied victory battle at Midway Island against Japan during World War 2.
