I've been working towards the goal of landing at every public airport in IL. Decided that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit O'Hare day VFR. Everything went smoothly, approach and tower were easy to deal with, taxiing to the departure runway was by far the hardest part.... those ground controllers don't give you any slack. Took my 11YO along to take pictures, so very few of them came out lol. Hopefully she's old enough to remember and someday appreciate it. Got flight following on the ground at home, had to repeat o'hare twice.... first Chicago approach controller asked again...you want to LAND at ohare? Affirmative. They took me along the lake shore and gave me 27L. Thankfully I had looked up the ILS ahead of time, as I never would've gotten to the correct runway without it. Had to make a 360 to let a CRJ in ahead of me, and by luck was circling Wrigley. Asked for a taxi back, but they required me to go pay at signature. $178, assuming you stay less than an hour. Got flight following back home from metering. A few comments, giggles, and waves from the heavy iron...taxied all the way to 28R and got my first "line up and wait" Absolutely 100% worth the time & money. Landing on the runway is just like anywhere else, but the experience of talking to ground (or rather, listening), and winding around the terminal with jets everywhere was something special.
