Picture of the Day: San Francisco Airport from Above
SAN FRANCISCO AIRPORT FROM ABOVE
In this fantastic aerial photograph by Todd Lappin, we see the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) as it looked in 2006. In the foreground is the original mid-1950’s terminal building and control tower. It was later used as the International Terminal and then went unused for a period of time. In 2008 it underwent a $383 million renovation and the terminal reopened (as Terminal 2) on April 14, 2011, with Virgin America and American Airlines sharing the new 14-gate facility.
SFO is the second busiest in California after LAX and is located 13 miles (21km) south of downtown San Francisco. The airport first opened on May 7, 1927. [Source]
