A Clear Sky in the Mile High City to a Busy Afternoon Crossing the San Mateo Bridge

DENVER to SAN FRANCISCO

Yesterday as you obviously know, United had featured airports, I was going to fly Newark to San Francisco, but the scenery over the US is about as boring as a flight like New York to Chicago @Esaacc999 , until you hit Denver when the Rocky Mountains show up and the scenery is awesome. So I flew Denver to San Francisco, thanks @MJL_Productions for the ATC at Denver, even though I accidentally hit Remaining in the Pattern 🤭 . It’s really cool that there are so many shorter domestic flights all over the world, they’re so common and fun to fly. I met up with my U.S. Airways hub friend @Luke_Sta at the gate in San Fran after almost having a parallel approach on the 28s. I used the 787-9, which United uses in real life, and flight time was 2 hours and 8 minutes.

@BigBert10 but like I said I wanted to fly the 787, but don’t worry, only a few days until Vancouver to San Jose :D

@Kevinsoto1502 thank you! 😊

@MJL_Productions it was! I live when ATC is in the US, I’m definitely not biased 😂
