A few photos from SFO at the end of our recent USA West Coast holiday. We booked into a Bay-side hotel for our last night there - fantastic views over the parallel runways with the viewing angle making the aircraft appear scarily close together! Interesting birdlife in the bay too - that's a flight of pelicans sharing the airspace in the last photo!

Only been to SFO the one time, was lucky enough to be sat on the jump seat for landing in a Virgin 747. There was a KLM 747 just ahead of us on the parallel runway

I'm envious! That must've been quite an experience :)
Best view of a 747 we got was from the B.A.R.T train lol -

As we were waiting for our return flight, we noticed some banners advertising the SFO Museum and Library which is located at the far end of the departure lounge. There is a long-term display about the China Clippers as well as temporary exhibitions on other subjects. We visited on change-over day so only saw half of the display of civil aircraft models - an excellent, highly detailed collection outlining the history of civil aviation. Two large scale models of a DC-3 and Fokker F.VIIB trimotor hang from the roof.
