A380 Gear Sequence

B11I1197The jets approaching SFO have their gear down long before they reach Coyote Point.  However, if you look into the distance, you can see them lower the gear somewhere around the San Mateo Bridge.  The A380 has a gear sequence that involves the outer gear coming down first followed by the body gear.  I figured I would shoot at long range and then animate the sequence.  Heat haze was not great but I think it shows the way things work.  Maybe in the winter I will try this again and see if I can get a cleaner image.
