Hello IFC! So as most of you know, the “… from 100,000ft” screenshots are quite popular, so I decided to fly to 100,000ft and see what I could catch. Being a native Californian, I decided to take a look at the Tectonic Plate Boundary of the Pacific Plate and the North American Plate. In case you don’t know where to look, I outlined the photos showing the San Andreas Fault.
Route: San Clemente (KNUC) to 100,000ft (somewhere over the L.A. Basin)
Flight Time: N/A
(Here is one of the photos without the plate boundary shown, if you look closely you can see the San Andreas and a few other faults)
Please let me know what you think and what you’d like to see next, and as always, constructive criticism is always welcome!
Oh man that’s amazing! Great idea to look for a fault in the scenery…
Definitely an interesting one, nice shots!
Thanks! I’ve always wanted to find something unique so I could post something from 100,000ft 😂
Never knew about the San Andreas Fault, I did some more research, quite fascinating! It is capable of a 8.1 magnitude earthquake, and has been around for about 30 million years. Even more interesting, scientists are drilling into the fault to help predict earthquakes and study them better!
Yes! It’s been quiet by the Salton Sea for over 300 years. It’s supposed to have a major quake every 100-150 years. So you know. 😬😂
Might have to take a TBM and fly through here someday!
You can see it better through Central California, it’s a straight line that’s quite visible
Thanks! I will be sure to try that!
Ok cool! I’m out of likes 😂
I love these kinds of pics! Nice job!
