Remark Photographer
N219UA (cn 30551/318) This is something I've never seen before. Two UA 777's were instructed to position and hold on both 28L and 28R simultaneously. I was hoping they'd drag race down the runway :) But N219UA on 28L was cleared first and N206UA on 28R about 3 minutes later. I got an email from Keith, the ATC on duty at that time. He said that the basic rule at SFO is to never load both runways simultaneously. But both 777's were ready to go and there was no aircraft on final so he could load both runways.

So which 777 has Michael Schumacher as a pilot???

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sun August 26, 2012:
Double 777? What does it mean?
Wait, I know the answer already; Great pic! this is why parallel runways are a good idea!

A visitor from - posted Thu December 15, 2011:
To the poster from the UK, you may see side-by departures off of the 1's, or even the 28's when landing and departing runways 28, but you will never see it with a pair of heavy jets or 757s for wake turbulence reasons. You may, however, see one heavy or 757 with a large or small aircraft leading it slighly (so not exactly simultaneous as you would have with 2 larges or smalls).

On your marks, Get set and ....! Amazing!!! - doubleC MW

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 3, 2010:
And....United #2 wins! really cool

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun December 21, 2008:
On the note about simultaneous departures not being allowed, I have seen exactly that on runways 1L and 1R

A visitor from Sri Lanka posted Fri December 12, 2008:
Cool man.. lucky as ever!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun November 2, 2008:
Yeah, it seems that 206 has thrust reversers deployed... maybe he had to back up a little for the start or otherwise the race wld have been unfair! :)

A visitor from India posted Thu June 12, 2008:
What a beautiful shot

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed February 21, 2007:
Great picture!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 24, 2006:
Love the fact that both are lined up and waiting...like you mentioned a drag race. Amazing shot especially cool if you're a passenger on one of these planes. Going to be my desktop background for a long time :)

A visitor from Canada posted Mon July 17, 2006:
Just perfect ... this livery never seems to lose its class (not that it would in this photo); the livery has a timeless quality

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 16, 2006:
Now this is one HOT photo! I love watching all the take-offs and landings outside the Marriott sfo airport, but never saw such a great sight as this!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat July 15, 2006:
Awsomeeeeee pic....

A visitor from Australia posted Mon June 19, 2006:
Just a great shot never seen it before two 777's lined up waiting for the lights to go green.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 6, 2006:
Sisters. wow

A visitor from Malaysia posted Fri May 19, 2006:
Wow! That is a cool picture! Well caught mate. :)

Had they taken off at the same time, the hot air produced may push botht eh planes sideways and belly up!

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 13, 2006:
Can you image a photo of both of them rotating simulateously! Very nice shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sat May 13, 2006:
A drag race!?!? VROOM VROOM!!!

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri May 12, 2006:
I use it as desktop photo

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 4, 2006:
Great Picture! What a way to capture two 777 next to each other and also from the same airliner. Great capture and coincidence! Well Done to the Photographer!

A visitor from Spain posted Thu May 4, 2006:
Great photo! Such a good livery in such a good plane!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon April 3, 2006:
A drag race would have been sublime ... but this more than suffices! Beautiful twins at a great airport.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 16, 2006:
Wow, the great simple beauty of two 777's, gotta love that.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Mon February 6, 2006:

I wonder how this pic could have been better ... no way (May be with the finest A340-600s BTW ;-). Bravo! 5 Stars

These two planes look great!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Rats! :( That would have been so cool to see these big tri-7 heavies making a rubberburn with each other for the fastest rotation! Now try and get this shot again in the near future in United's forthcoming paint scheme!

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 3, 2006:
These birds are amazing

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 25, 2005:
Dammm a T7 drag race hmmm wish i was there who won 206 or 219??

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri December 23, 2005:
This photo is great because it looks like a drag race nice pic..

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 22, 2005:
Gotta to hand it to the photographer. Great shot of two of my pension terminating airline 777's. They are great birds to fly though.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed December 21, 2005:
A surreal moment for sfo.
To the german poster, the 777 on rwy 28R hasnt got its reversers deployed, what you are seeing is the inside of the front wheel bay doors of the 777 on runway 28L in front of the port side engine.

A visitor from United States posted Wed December 21, 2005:
Yeah!!!

A visitor from Jamaica posted Tue December 20, 2005:
I'm feeling the 'drag recing' atmosphere here - wonder if they revved their engines at each other :)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 20, 2005:
The Triple 7 is the finest Airliner in the Sky, and SFO is a special Airport, What perfection to catch both together, Well done to the photographer for catching a 'Dream' moment!

A visitor from Belarus posted Sun December 18, 2005:
Wow... Nothing to comment... Right moment and right place!

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 18, 2005:
Ya, its very rare to have aircraft on the 28s taxi into position and hold at once at SFO because it would interfere with the landing flow. I very rarley see it here, great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Great shot for aircraft lovers!I agree with whoever said that,good job!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Would have been even better if this was a pic of them taking off together!

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Sat December 17, 2005:
It is a great view for aircraft lovers, great shot!, it would must be another great shot if the takeoff time is 1 minute b/w them, so we would be seen another great shot of takeoff these big bird. Faisal Pakistan

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:
You never see this ... I agree with the photographer's comment that it would have been great it they drag raced down the runway ... unfortunately, the FAA would have none of that. Great photo regardless.

A visitor from Finland posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Simply perfect.
5 points.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Wow, two nice aircrafts together. But why has N206UA deployed thrust reversers(=>or does it only look this way?)?

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:
I love this shot, its almost like one is popping out of the other, great photo

A visitor from India posted Sat December 17, 2005:
It looks like they are going to drag race......very scenic... good job

A visitor from - posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Get two birds with one stone, eh? Nice!

A visitor from Argentina posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Superb!

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Very nice shot of an unusual situation. I am impressed that you appreciate that this is an unusual situation and you also chose just the right vantage spot to get the planes lined up so nicely.

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 17, 2005:
I really enjoy these side by side shots.

A visitor from France posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Beautifull!!

A visitor from Mexico posted Sat December 17, 2005:
Watching them takin´ off together could be awesome, like the Thunderbirds used to do.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Wow! What a great shot. This indeed is a sight you don't see very often. A drag would have been very cool.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 16, 2005:
LOL! Right moment, right time...and a great comment!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Cool picture. But your lucky to even see this so i think this is good enough.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Photos like this are hard to come by especially when they are of the same type aircraft and the same company.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Wow..imagine how strong the wake vortices would've been if they had raced down the runway!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Drag race baby!!!!

A visitor from Spain posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Like t5he man says its a rare sight

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Coolllll!!!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Really nice pic!
I think that goes against a few reg.s if they were to "race".

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Great shot.Perfect timing...It would've been awesome to see two of my fav. planes takeoff at the same time.

Most interesting - a "dual" take off would have ben one to watch!

A visitor from Spain posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Terrific

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Hey SFO, drag race next time?! Truly would be awesome to see!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Sweet! Seeing those 777s drag would be a once in a lifetime deal...too bad it didnt happen :(

A visitor from Brazil posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Well, that´s Frisco. Close encounters like that are part of the field´s routine. Great perspective, though! Nice shot!

A visitor from Germany posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Lucky shot !!! simply amazing....the triple seven of United is definitly the best.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
A dragrace would've been sweet!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Sweet!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
What a great event to have recorded. The drag race would have been awesome: kind of like a Thunderbirds takeoff. The angle is perfect for making the main gear look like a giant ski.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Amazing Picture !!!!!

A visitor from Poland posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Excellent. Superb. I wish you more photos like this. Maybe in future I'll take some photos like this. Pozdrawiam Mati

A visitor from France posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Indeed it's all about timing.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Excellent photo. Why the 3 minute wait for takeoff though?

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Excellent photo. WHy the 3 minute wait for take-off though?

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Great shot!

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
That would have been sweet to see a T-7 drag race, excellent photo.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 16, 2005:
If they were to takeoff at the same time wake turbulence would be an issue

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri December 16, 2005:
