Over the Threshold

When the aircraft are approaching SFO from over the bay, they touchdown out of sight of the usual locations on the bay shore.  However, the old control tower provides a better perspective on these approaches.  While you are shooting through some pretty stout glass, you can get a good shot or two of the approaches.  A good example was the Lufthansa Airbus A380.  Watching it come in towards the land, drift across the shoreline and over the threshold before touching down a little way down the runway, you see things in a way that is not often achievable.  Since the tower will shortly be demolished, I doubt I will get something similar for a while.
