    Yup, you're probably on approach for what was then O'Hare Runway 27L (which is now Runway 28).

    When the winds are predominantly offshore, planes land westbound. The approach to 27R goes east over the north suburbs, just north of the Lake-Cook county line, turning south and back west over the lake. But your approach takes you east, just south of downtown, giving you this magnificent view, before you turned north and back west over the lake. You probably saw the same area from the opposite side, didn't you?
