The San Mateo bridge, Westbound towards the 101!
The heavies on final into SFO
coming in from the south. Especially fun between about 1030 and 1600 when the Euros and Asians come a calling!
People who know, know not to travel on this bridge with me! It is a little better now since the East span has been widened to 3 lanes each direction. Before, with me with eyes on the planes, the Bay below, and cars trying to get around me, made for an always interesting trip.
On a side note, anyone remember the Limo-staging area at SFO
? Great place to spot, only to be closed now for security issues. To get a photo-shot without the fence in the way, all one had to do would be to stand on their car! (Blanket in the boot was solely for this purpose, wouldn't want to scratch the paint mind you!)
It was great fun in the old days when the DC-8s, 727s, 707s would take off, LOUD is better! I'm sure the folks in Millbrae would beg to differ!!! But, I for one could think of nothing better than having the ground shake from the thrust of an old American 707 heading to DFW
!!!! Besides, they were easier to follow off into the horizon! Kinda like low-level contrails.
, I have said enough, NEXT!
