I couldn't believe what I saw flying overhead this afternoon

This weekend is the Chicago Air and Water Show. Years ago I attempted to go and was stuck in total gridlock on Lake Shore Drive. I have since decided to not brave million plus people crowds. So, I decided to once again not go anywhere near the lakefront today. So I went on with my regular routine. I was riding my bike on the trail about thirty five mile Southwest of the city. I hear a big jet sound overhead and immediately knew it was not an airliner coming out or going in to Midway. I look up and cannot believe what I am seeing. Flying overhead heading towards the lake is.......... A freakin light grey F-4 Phantom. That made a good ride a great one!
I believe I said outloud. "Now there's something you don't see everyday!"
