It's always a great time of year. I was spotting at SFO
yesterday afternoon and watched as several airline operations were put on hold for a flyby and arrival of two Hornets. A UA
763, Air China 744, UA
777, and AS
734 were all waiting for the 28L/R que as two Hornets approached from the east.
They made a fast pass down the runway then pulled hard right out toward the bay again over the AA
hangar. Less than 40 seconds later, they were lined up and made soft touchdowns on 28R.
It's been great the last two days sitting on our 36th floor patio here at work in downtown SF
, enjoying the noise of unfettered jet power production over our fair city.
If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty
