There are helicopters and private jets.
And every once in a while, you get that spectacular look at the amazing! This weekend was Seafair. Hydroplane races, the Blue Angels, wakeboarding contests. This afternoon I heard that familiar low rumble. I grabbed my camera.... and suddenly a huge 747-8 flew overhead. Barely overhead!! This thing was so low, it was incredible!! And there was a tracer plane taking publicity shots! This is the brand new 747-8 series! It's beautiful!
It circled over our house a couple times (the first time, my adrenalin was pumping so hard I didn't get the settings correct on the camera!) then I heard that low rumble again. I don't know why I get so excited about low flying planes. I think it's their size and the fact that they're in the air. Just amazing! They were doing fly overs for Seafair, giving everyone a good look at the newest plane.
One time while we still lived in San Diego, Chuck and I bought sub sandwiches, then he drove to Lindberg Field and we sat in the car and ate at the end of the runway! Heaven!
