Departing PHX with I-10 under the wing.
A great view of New Mexico One and a classic Arizona sunset. Florida One is at C2, just behind NM1.
Waiting for SWA3396 to board. Off to Seattle again!
Pt. Reyes, Tomales Bay, and Kent Lake seen from 12,000ft on the GOLDN6 arrival into KSFO.
“Cessna 405, cleared through the Bravo to 5,500.”
Climbing through the SFO Bravo on the way back to EDU after dinner in Palo Alto.
One white, one red, on a sunset approach to Runway 31 at Palo Alto (KPAO).
Looking east, 4,500ft over Dublin, CA, straight down the extended centerline of 7R/25L at Livermore (KLVK).
Interstate 580 is on the left side of the frame.
Incredibly clear day in the Bay Area.
1,900ft MSL over Fremont, CA, sliding under the SFO Class Bravo.
Flying over a wind farm north of Antioch, CA.
“Cessna 405, traffic at your 10 o’clock is a Southwest 737 crossing left to right, 1,000 feet above, caution wake turbulence.”
I made the flight down to Palo Alto (KPAO) yesterday which involved navigating across the approach path to Oakland International. After crossing the extended centerline of Runway 29 at KOAK, I was handed off to an extremely busy Palo Alto Tower.
Planning to fly EDU-PAO tomorrow to meet my family for Chinese New Year.
Flying across the Bay will be fun.
Cruising north of the San Gabriel Mountains, bordering the wasteland known as LA.
About to head out on SWA2178 PHX-SMF. The last inbound from SMF was a 738, but I got stuck on a 733.
Long, long shadows cast by the skyscrapers of Downtown San Francisco.
All the San Francisco landmarks in one shot. The Bay Bridge, the Embarcadero, downtown, the piers, the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and the Marin Headlands.
I promise I’ll post something besides Bay Tour photos eventually.
