N524VA (cn 3204) Qantas 747-400 (VH-OEI) is seen going around, climbing past us in the A319. We were performing a parallel ("side-by") approach to Runway 28 in San Francisco (SFO) when apparently the heavy couldn't stay behind us and had to go around. It was the most spectacular thing I have ever seen from inside an airplane!

Boeing 747-422
San Francisco - International (SFO / KSFO)
USA - California, June 19, 2001
Remark
Photographer
N178UA (cn 24385/820) Wing Shot - We were landing as UA931 from London. We were told to line up for 28L and allow a 757 (landing on 28R) to lead the way to the threshold, during the simultaneous approach. While on a 1-mile final we couldn't slow down enough, and overtook the 757 just seconds before touchdown. The runways are less than 1,000 ft apart at SFO, and this photo illustrates just how close we got. Imagine the wake turbulence behind this "parade".
