I certainly missed it, but the San Francisco Examiner reports that a Qantas 747 got ATC clearance to perform a low-flight maneuver over the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay, and the San Francisco skyline yesterday (August 11, 2000). The airliner flew up from LAX followed by a small plane with photographer in tow, since the final results will be seen in a commercial during the Summer Olympics.
Quite interesting since they no longer fly to San Francisco.
I say since they "love" LA so much, let them buzz the beautiful port of LA/Long Beach or the bacteria-laden beaches of Orange County. Perhaps the haze was too much even for the Aussies!
