SJC's newly re-constructed Runway 30R/12L (now 11,000 feet long) on grand opening day. We are looking towards the south, with "12L" barely visible. The large lighted "X" is about to be taken down. The runway took 19 months to complete, and it's only one of two new commercial runways to be opened in the U.S. this year.
