Just like the old days- From a Blue Sky in the Pacific Northwest to a Sunset on the Bay

As some of you may know, back in October and November I flew Seattle to San Francisco more than once a week, and for I’m pretty sure 5 weeks in a row, I posted SEA-SFO on Thursday night. I’ve been flying around parts of the world that I never see for the past few weeks, but I miss when I would just fly and fly for fun. So on Saturday night I flew the classic Seattle to San Francisco route, I took off at 6:15 PM for me on the East Coast so I landed at 5:45 on the West Coast as the sun set over the bay. I used the Alaska A320 and flight time was 1 hour 29 minutes.

Leaving Seattle on an oddly clear Washington afternoon
Putting the gear up as we blast up to 37,000 feet Whenever I fly around Seattle, I always show Mount Rainier, and it never gets old Cruising by the mountains of Redding Starting to descend toward the bay over the Sacramento River Turning over the sunlit mountains just outside of Oakland On the visual approach for runway 28L Putting the gear down in the yellow Northern California Sky On final as the instrumentals shine Touching down in San Francisco!

As always please let me know your thoughts and your favorite photo!

It’s always great to return to a ’home‘ route, and with such a stunning livery and great perspectives this makes a great topic!

Great wing view! Thanks for sharing!

It is always fun to fly a “home route” even if I live 2500 miles away from Seattle 😂

And NorCal is surprisingly beautiful with its mountains!

I think around 1.1 million people flew the route making it really popular

I can’t wait to see another San Jose route, especially with a trivia question!
