Parallel Takeoff SFO

I usually don’t post photos on here but I thought this one was nice and wanted to share :)

United 738 (KSFO-KLAX) and Philippines 77W (KSFO-RPLL) taking off on RWYS 1L and 1R respectively.


Amazing shot! The parallel takeoffs/landings are beautiful at SFO.

why’d you takeoff from 1R?

Thats just where ATC told me to go. I actually prefer 1L/1R for departures because the taxi is usually shorter, and I think the shorter runway makes for a more interesting challenge especially when paired with heavy crosswinds :)
