Chicago from 36,000 feet

6 posts in this topic

I ran across this beautifully clear image of Chicago at night from 36,000 feet. It is amazing that such a great photo was able to be taken without quality being sacrificed.

Is there a way to verify that height? This shot seems quite a bit lower than 36,000 feet.

Probably no way to verify height, but it is high enough enough where they would not be circling in for landing at O'Hare or just after a take-off. Perhaps a decent into Wisconsin? The photographer likely had a zoom on his camera causing it to appear closer than 36k feet if that is indeed correct.
