Great shot Andrew!

Very nice
Looks like they are going for the third wire!

I've flown into SAN many times; I can't figure this picture out at all? Where is the photo vantage point; where's the rest of the runway? (I know I'll feel dumb when you tell me!)
Mike Dryden
A long lens, making the runway appear much shorter, looking along 27. If Google Earth is anything to go by, there is a ~5 storey building with a carpark on the roof. That's the building in the shot, obscuring the runway short of the displaced threshold. There's a rooftop on the other side of the freeway that looks like it's about the right spot. But I'm only guessing...

Might even be from the Air & Space Museum, up on the hill, if there is line of sight. Can almost re-create the shot in GE from there.

Great shot
Optical illusion looking like short runway
adelma
Mike - I think you're correct; but what's throwing me off is that the runway markings don't at all match the current GE?

At 200 ft wide, SAN has a relatively wide runway (many are only 150 ft). It also pretty short for an int'l airport, all that you can see in this photo is a little over 8000 ft of runway length, since you can't see the displaced threshold. All of this creates the illusion of a much shorter runway, you notice it flying in there as well.

Pilot of this airplane is a friend of mine. He flew the F-15 jet fighter in the U.S. Air Force before joining Delta Airlines. His father flew the C-47 (DC3) in Indonesia during World War II with the Dutch Army. All of us are Dutchmen including me.

Peter Maas - this just might be of interest to You and your Delta pilot friend... and it's where the Dutch aviation cadets trained in the U.S.A. during WWII...

I once knew a gentleman who during those wartime years was an USAAF instructor pilot to the Dutch aviation cadets at the Royal Netherlands Military Flying School located at Hawkins Field.
