Remarks: Such an unusually clear and gorgeous afternoon, I had to take some pictures. Terminal 1 is sparsely populated in-between traffic rush periods, the Delta Skyteam 757 sits between flights to JFK. The A terminal hosts only a British Airways 747, while terminal 2 has a hand full of Virgin America tails. At the top of the frame, an American 767-200 climbs away to JFK, closely trailed by a United A320 departing 1R as an oil tanker makes a rare trip up from the South Bay. You can see Oakland International directly across from SFO. Taken from my home in Millbrae.
Remarks: The sun starts to set as Virgin Atlantic's "Cosmic Girl" (G-VWOW) starts to depart on 28L for London Heathrow (EGLL), "Speedbird" 284 Heavy (BAW284) is heading to the same runway on "Foxtrot" to start its own flight to EGLL. Note the Soccer ball (football) on the nose of G-CIVO.
