As a 49ers fan, I'm sad. (SPOTTING AT SJC)

Hello! Today’s plane spotting collection is from February 12th and 14th at SJC.

Hope you all enjoy!

Here are the first 9 photos, all from February 12th.

First up, a beautiful Delta A220-300 from MSP!

Next. and this is why I am really sad. This United 777-300ER was ferrying the 49ers back to the Bay Area from Las Vegas after losing a tough one in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. And even worse, my camera refused to focus after this shot. Oh well. Hopefully we will have a good chance next year.

Next up, on a happier note, my first United 767-400!!! This one was ferrying friends, family, and some staff of the 49ers from Las Vegas. Still sad, though.

A great looking Southwest 737 MAX!

A Spirit A320neo with that nasty looking “scratched paint” livery coming from DFW. Glad they changed it.

My first cargo 757! UPS from Louisville!

In my last post, I shared a United A320 that showed up as the older livery on FlightRadar24, and I had snapped the shot of it in the new livery that was rejected on JetPhotos. This time, this United A320 was accepted! Take a look here. Oh, and @Zachary, go ahead and use this on the United Evo Blue thread.

Missouri One! My first time spotting this special livery!

My first time spotting this plane. I never realized how good it looked! This Alaska 737-800 in the “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge” livery roaring in from Sea-Tac!

This last shot was from today, February 14th.

Finally, the gorgeous Alaska 737 MAX 9 in the “West Coast Wonders” livery slowing down, kicking up a lot of mist on a wet runway 12R!

Combined, probably some of my best days ever spotting at SJC. Which shot did you like best?

Sigh…I’ve said ”hopefully next year” each time they’ve made the Super Bowl and fell short. But it’s really all we can say 😭

On another note, I can always look forward to more photos from you from my local airports 😁 sweet shots as always!
