EK A380 At SFO...... Anyone Else Gonna Be There?

Sat Aug 02, 2008 7:27 pm

Hey Everyone!!!

I am just wondering as to what time the Emirates A380 will be flying into SFO on monday and also if there will be members from here that will also be watching and photographing. And on a side note, will a 75-300mm lens be good to use from bayfront park? I am either thinking of going there or to the fishing area right near coyote point but not in the park itself.

I will be there for Monday. Currently packing my bags to go to the airport to catch my flight.
It is scheduled to arrive 10:50am as EK7221 unless it has changed.
I think 300mm should be okay for a plane of that size.
Currently it looks like Bayfront park would be the best place for spotters to gather.
The new york gathering looked really really nice, tons of people coming out. I hope there will be just as much for the bay area.

Only question is will there be spotting opportunities for its departure on the 28s the day after?

Bo,

There is a caltrain station in San Bruno that sits just to the right of the 28's and is about 3/4 of a mile away. I sometimes go there and it is nice to take some shots of departing aircraft and i get thm quite easily with my camera.


What time will it depart?
