SFO crunch

"The 10pm to 11pm outbound crunch at San Francisco International Airport on Friday, July 17th, 2009. Departures on Runways 1L/1R as seen from Millbrae. Qantas Airways Limited flight 74 (Boeing 747-400) can be seen crossing midfield left to right and then departing on 27 28 for Sydney (YSSY).

Before the crunch, there's about 20 minutes where the airport almost goes silent. I also noticed that after 10pm only one departure happens at a time, whereas side by side takeoffs were occuring prior to that. I assume that's for noise control reasons.

Stack of 31 exposures. And to the Millbrae residents who saw me shooting on the sidewalk near your houses, sorry if I bothered you."
