Ha! Beat you there!

To the post that says this is forbidden, you are mistaken. I am a controller at SFO and this is a common occurance and perfectly legal. So long as at least one pilot is able to maintain visual separation, no rules are being broken, even with exactly parallel landings and even when one or both aircraft have greater wake turbulence standards.

The photo is absolutely great, just lovely !!! But hey, this is not right... You cannot have a parallel landing nor t/o when both runways are this close!! It is actually forbidden for safety reasons-- So, to make this gr8 picture possible, it seems like someone really screw things up in the tower...

Firstly, nice picture, beautiful scenery .. well, I do not wish that were true, but really the 321 seems like a copy of 757, or vice versa ... and really, 757 and 717 do not seem to belong to the Boeing family, very different nose (comment only on a visual standpoint, without considering technical details) .. Oh, sure, 5* shot! ;-)

Wow, I didn't know that the A321 had such a similar size to the B757

Great shot of SFO at its best. this shot also reminds us of what airline dominates SFO... and its not US AIR..;)

Great pic, and to answer your question, They try to keep them about 10 knot difference.
| A visitor from Denmark posted Sun September 3, 2006:|
This is awesome.. You must have been at the right place at exactly the rigth time! btw I didn't think they landed aircraft parallely at the same time for security reasons?
| A visitor from United States posted Wed August 23, 2006:|

Fantastic! I love SFO for their parallel landings... A truly special landing that I've been lucky to experience! With the upcoming expansion this might become a thing of the past..?
