Incredible photo! Great catch on the fly :)

Thanks Darryl and Pampanga - it was difficult with the curved window in the c172 as we turned. Most of the photos on this jet were slightly out of focus as we had some bumpy air and filming through plastic windows is not easy.

Bit confused here....KSJC does not have Rwy 29.

I believe it only has 12R/30L and 12L/30R.

Am open to correction, though...

zx zczc - where are your photos? I can't believe you have nothing better to do than cruise the photos and make comments......I looked at 2 and that was all I needed to see. If you had checked the date on the photo & my comments, and if you had any common sense, you'd have realized the photo was taken long before the 29 runway was closed. How old are you?

Tom - My apologies, I stand corrected. Thank you for clarifying it so gracefully.
Your picture is marked from 2007 .. there was a runway 29 at that time. There were three parallel runways, 11/29, 30L/12R, and 30R/12L. 11/29 was about 4000' long and was called the 'touch and go strip' for a long time locally, even the Jepp charts had it marked as such. 11/29 was decommissioned recently, I want to say maybe two years ago, and today that is Taxiway W1.
