Another odd visitor at SFO today (03/11): a 777 (I think) with red, orange and yellow "waves" on it's tail. Parked over by international gates. Charter perhaps? Sorry I don't have more info or a better description. I was speeding along the 101 and rubbernecking at the plane trying not to swerve into the Lexus next to me.
THREEPOINT is right! That's what I saw. What an exciting & very different thing to see!
MOTORHUSSY, I think what I saw was something very similar if not exactly that in the photo and you are right, it was a Royal New Zealand Air Force 757 just as inscribed on the photo ( oops maybe this should have been posted in the military thread but the sighing was in a commercial airport).
When I don't bring my camera is when the unique ones appear. Lesson learned here is to always bring my camera!
