Crazy Day at SFO


We were at the south end of SFO’s long runways (28L & R) and this UAL 777 made the turn to get into takeoff position.

And then all of a sudden, this AF A340 appears out of nowhere (you can see how foggy it was in the previous picture). It hits the gas and goes around for another chance at landing. I have no idea if the pilots just got spooked or if I nearly saw Tenerife 2.0.

It was foggy.

There’s the AF A340 from before, finally landing.

I love seeing 747s take off.

And then – this time with empty runways – this BA 747 appears out of the fog and has to go around. This was the first time I’ve seen one plane abort a landing, let alone two.

Meanwhile, I thought this was cute.

And the BA came around for a successful landing.

  1. Jen,

    Airplanes remind me a little bit of whales. They’re cute in the same way as whales, you know?
