Pacific time, May 14, 2004. During my prep period at the school where I teach in National City, I heard a jet flying directly over. A bit unusual, as most traffic is passing from right to left (looking north) on approach to SAN
I went outside to investigate, and saw Southwest Airline's Lone Star One flying due north over my school, wheels up:

I am assuming it made a missed approach turn, headed in a counter-clockwise circle for another attempt at landing. However, in five years, I've never seen a passenger aircraft fly that route.
Anyone have any information?
