  1. Yesterday I made a flight from Round Valley to San Francisco. It appeared to be one of the most nicest flights for me with a beautiful view on the Golden Gate Bridge: Have a nice flight, Wil
  2. Ok so of course, had to do this: let's recreate the fun of flying an F/A-18 from Alameda Naval Air Station, under the Golden Gate Bridge, and landing at KSFO. This took about three minutes of flight in all, and required a little careful maneuvering <g>: Taking off at dawn in the rain at Alameda NAS: Light fuel load, instruments up, all ready to go! You can see the map of the area on the central data display; VRS' simulation of the instrumentation is quite detailed, and a lot of fun to learn and master: Decided since yeah, it's the Blue Angels #1, let's put all the pretty lights on: ... and here we go with a little quick side view towards San Francisco, right after takeoff: I think I may freak out some early morning commuters -- not a lot of maneuvering room on the bridge, so hang on! Or under it, for that matter..... Okay, let's go! Best not to go for a swim at these speeds..... Whew! A little celebration on afterburner... hey, I'm already at 12,000 ft. altitude, what was that, fifteen seconds?! Or 3??? Continued next post.... Continued..... Okay, equanimity recovered, a quick tour past Coit Tower..... and the SF docks..... Setup for landing (no, I didn't ask permission....).... Okay, I paused, hard to land an F/A-18 with a load and also hit the 'V' key for a screenshot: Almost down..... And boom! On the ground. Welcome to where it all started, so many years ago!
