Last night I flew from Burbank to San Francisco and back to Burbank in the Desert Gold Southwest 737. Burbank to San Francisco took 45 minutes and San Francisco to Burbank took 48 minutes so the total flight time was 1 hour 13 minutes. The sky was bright and blue when I left Burbank, but the sun set quickly as we returned to Burbank.

The approach into Burbank from the East is absolutely stunning as you fly in over the mountains
