Aerial Photos


Fashion Island

Avalon, Catalina Island

Moffett Airfield - Home of Google's 767 (they'll need a lot more solar cells to offset all that CO2 from each flight)

I brought my Garmin GPS with me since we were renting a car in San Jose. The satellite signal was pretty strong so I was tracking our flight most of the way. Somewhere over Santa Maria, our Boeing 737 was traveling at 542 MPH. Southwest allows you to use a GPS receiver after take-off but not American. I was hoping to see if the Embraer jet was slower since the scheduled flight time between SNA and SJC for Southwest was 1:15 (737) while American Eagle was 1:35 (ERJ-140).
