Great illustration of the contrast in approach styles between the two a/c types. It looks like the CRJ grew some big gear in the back!

Imagine behind the 767 was a 777 or a 747. Then it would be like father mother and son taking a walk near the ocean on a beautiful San Francisco day.

The planes were obviously not as close together as the photo makes it, but through the use of depth it makes it look like they were right on top of each other!

An excellent capture in the actual size difference of these aircraft. The fact that they both carrie the same carrier markings adds a great visual touch to this scene. The background, the water in the foreground; great visual capture by Mr Wang! Thanks for your great images.

I think this shot is very cool because its such a rare shot even on a.net . the fact that both planes are by the same airline makes it even cooler.

767: Me, first! I'm bigger!

CR-J: No, me! You don't let me land, first: I'm telling mom!

In all seriousness: great shot! Truly a "San Francisco Treat!".

Fantastic photo. Birds of a feather flock together. :) Very unique perspective. Nice environmental setting. The water, rocks, and mountainous terrain add to the photos beauty. A great memorialization of United Airlines livery as well given the recent merger.

Great photo... And to those who wouldn't fly on N666UA because of the tail number, you shouldn't fly on airplanes at all. The world is flat after all and you might just fly off the edge.

This is the perspective as seen through the telephoto lens the picture was taken with (compressed)

Wonder what it looked like to an observer without a camera?

Congratulations Ben on one heck of a shot!

Another of Ben Wang's "Magic" shots!
First of all....the two runways these guys are landing on are 750 ft. apart; second... one plane is much closer to the camera, thus making it appear as though they are side by side, (which they are not) All things considered, this is one of the finest aircraft landing photos you will ever see, ANYPLACE!

I think it's pretty cool to see two very different jets side by side coming in for a landing. It's a good way to see the difference in size of the two planes.

This is a very good example of how landings can be done at SFO. The juxtaposition of the two aircraft is a very lucky shot, or very skilled. Either way. They look as though they are flaring to land on the same runway, but we know better. My compliments to the photographer. Sincerely, Rockinflyer!
