Recently yet another Illinois politician was sentenced to prison time. It gave me a chance to break out my camera’s longer lens and take some pictures of the TV helicopters circling The Loop.
That’s WLS-TV’s “Chopper 7HD” in the photo above. WMAQ’s “Sky5” is in the picture below. Click on either one of them to see the picture in greater detail.
WBBM-TV’s helicopter was too far away to get a shot worth using. WGN-TV’s helicopter wasn’t up for the event. 9 and 5 often share helicopter video. 11 and 32 somehow managed to cover the story without stunning pictures of black cars driving through downtown streets.
