UFO's seen at The Chicago Air Show!

During the air and water show I saw for about 10 seconds 2 flickering unconventional flying objects from my high-rise apartment fly across the sky about 10 seconds apart from one another from west to east at a high rate of speed and altitude north of the air show.

The estimated speed was 3000 mph, then slowed down to 500 mph then sped up and slowed down again and went behind an apartment building and a very slow rate of speed compared to the beginning of the sighting.

Later on I saw a lot of military aircraft flying in the area of the sighting and was wondering why the grand finally jets weren't performing.

The next day I found out the Thunderbird air show was canceled because something fell off some jet.

I found that to be very coincidental and perhaps was just a cover-up excuse and it really was because the air show's airspace was violated by unknown boggies or perhaps one of the unconventional flying objects bummed into one of the jets (midair collision) and caused damage.
