Here is a different view of a parallel landing at SFO. An US A321 is over the numbers for 28R while an UA 752 is just beyond the numbers for 28L. An UA 744 (N104UA) is holding short of 28R. Note the hold bars between the two runways just barely fit the 747. To see a ground level view of this same landing, please see photo 779790 by I. Gunawan.

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..?

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?

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

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! ;-)

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...

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.
