OK, I am at a friend's BBQ in San Diego yesterday, when I hear a plane overhead and immediately look up (a Pavlovian reaction, I guess). I was surprised to see a DC-10 (obviously descending, as my friend lives under the approach to SAN). There aren't many DC-10s that come into SAN.
It was basically directly overhead, so it was difficult to make out the airline. However, it turned slightly, and I was definitely able to make out the silver bird's AA logo! Did anyone see an AA DC-10 at SAN yesterday? I thought they weren't flying those into SAN any more. Maybe it was an emergency equipment replacement from LAX?
