Today I flew with my VA, DLVA, on our weekly Tricky Thursday Approaches. Todays Theme was Runway 1R in the RARE occasion at SFO. It was a great flight from SLC all the way to NORCAL. Great scenery, and a fun surprise on approach to SFO.

Thank you to everyone who came out tonight and the mods for stopping by. Hope you guys enjoy the screenshots :)


Were the winds favoring the 1s, they rarely do so that’s really cool!

Yea thankfully I managed to get out of there without interfering with y’all lol, in a strange way it was a bit scary, it felt like I was in the ocean being surrounded by sharks😂😂
