San Francisco from Land's End

Postby Scooper » Fri Sep 22, 2017 10:58 pm

Today was gorgeous except for the NorCal forest fires haze, so I took the Zodiac up for an hour long bay tour to check out my newly installed Aera 660 GPS panel mounted in an Air Gizmo adapter, and took my camera long to see if it was clear enough for decent photos. This picture was taken from just off Land's End looking east toward downtown with Crissy Field on the left and the western span of the Bay Bridge at the top left and Oakland across the bay at the top. The haze from the fires is pretty obvious. The Aera 660 worked great, and supports ADS-B In traffic display when connected to the GDL 39R ADS-B receiver.

You're making me homesick, Stan.

Paul, I didn't know you were from the bay area. Cool.

San Jose was my home from 1960 to 1990 (with interruptions for college and Air Force). After I got out of the service, I worked for Lockheed, had a Silicon Valley start-up, did a master's at San Jose State, a doctorate at Berkeley, and taught at West Valley, SJCC, and SJSU, while flight instructing out of KRHV. I get back about once a year - have a daughter and grandson in Berkeley, and a hangar at 1C9. We should fly together next time I'm out (maybe Jan or Feb).
You might have known me as N6TX once upon a time, or WA6UAM before that.

That's quite a CV, Paul. I did four years in the Air Force including two and a half years at Vandenberg Tracking Station supporting the Corona polar orbiting reconnaissance satellite program with six weeks TDY at the Blue Cube in Sunnyvale. I learned to fly at Vandenberg through the VAFB aero club in the early sixties.

Next time you're out this way give me a heads up.
