What is VORG?

The VORG, or Virtual Organization Rainbow Group, is an unofficial virtual organization where we use solid colors are our profile pics. Our CEO @Rolls started this organization back in September, when the iconic “traffic light” pattern was created. Starting from a small PM to a 10000 reply group chat, our (unofficial) organization is about to celebrate our fourth month anniversary, with our first public flyout! Feel free to contact our moderators if you have any questions or if you want to join VORG!

Why SFO?

Because of a dicta-democratic vote

Actually why SFO

San Francisco International Airport is the main airport serving the San Francisco bay area. It serves 62 airlines, and operates to destinations as close as San Jose, and as far as Bangalore, India. Its four terminals accommodate 118 gates, making it the seventh busiest airport in the United States. In 2019, over 57 million people passed through this airport, boarding almost 500,000 flights, and transporting a total of almost 550,000 tons of cargo. These terminals are full of amazing restaurants and shops. In fact, this airport is home to some of the best restaurants and bars San Francisco has to offer. Its luxurious terminal 3 is home to the SFO Museum, which opened in 1980. This exhibit has over twenty galleries, and even includes a model of a DC-3. Some people even admit to arriving at KSFO early to admire the artwork. Transportation to this airport is abundant, with the BART service transporting people around the airport. Caltrain operates rides to Millbrae station, where people can connect to the BART train. Buses carry people into and out of the airport around the clock, establishing reliable connections.

A Bit of History

Mills Field opened on March 15, 1927. At that time, the airport was nothing more than a cow pasture. Airlines arrived there six years later, with Maddux Air Lines and Western Air Express operating flights to Los Angeles. United Airlines quickly became a main operator in the small field, with mainline service to Los Angeles and New York beginning in 1937. By the 1940s, about 18 flights operated out of SFO daily, 17 United, and 1 TWA.

In 1939, Pacific Seaboard Airlines began operating a surfliner route along the California coast. Delta Air Lines acquired PSA in 1953, supplying this quirky airline with its first international route. By the late 1950s, Delta was flying international routes to the Caribbean, using their Convair 880 jets. International flights had actually begun back in 1946, when Australian National Airways and British Commonwealth Pacific Airlines began operations to Australia using DC-4s via Honolulu, Nadi, and Auckland. These pistons were eventually replaced by jets, and more advanced pistons. TWA used their L-1649s on European routes, while Qantas took over the Sydney route with their B707, via Honolulu and Nadi. By the 1960s, San Francisco was a stopover in one of the first commercial round the world flights, operated by BOAC and their adorable Bristol Brittanias. Lufthansa and Japan Airlines were not far behind, offering a flight to Frankfurt via Montreal and Paris on their own B707s, along with nonstop flights to Tokyo on their long range DC-8s. Braniff began service as Pan American-Grace Airways with flights to Buenos Aires on their DC-8. By the 1970s Canadian Pacific began flights all through Canada.

Boeing 707s, DC-8s, and Convair 880 were not only used for international routes, however. Domestic transcontinental flights began in 1954, with United Airlines’ new DC-7 mainliner. Flights by TWA, American, United, Pacific Air began to fill up domestic slots using piston aircraft and B707s. In the 1960s, DC-9s began to take over Coastal flights to Oregon and Washington, while Fairchilds’ F-27 began interstate flights. Flights to the east sped up, as new B707 took over transcontinental flights. Delta used the Convair 880s on flights to New Orleans and Miami. Pacific Southwest Airlines arrived at KSFO in 1960, with flights to Los Angeles county using their L-188s. With the addition of L-1011s and B727s in the 1970s, flights to Hawaii and the midwest commenced. Air California was another major airline, operating hops to Los Angeles.

Today, the four terminals and their respective eight concourses accommodate flights to all over the world, with over 1000 departures daily, pre COVID. San Francisco has established itself as a large airport, with 62 airlines serving it. Sturdy shuttle and rail connections secure a way to get to this airport. Transporting over 60 million passengers every year on average, we have decided that this airport will be the scene for our first VORG flyout
