All of you would say wait a minute you are going wrong way to south instead of north but I had received orders from airport contrllers to go to heading 180 after take off from runway 30R because they did not want me to take off to head to overcrowded and busy San Francisco air space full of many planes or otherwise the controllers would as in their own words lose their jobs so here is view of the plane passing the airport of departure heading southward on climb to FL310

Nice!  Bringing back those memories.  All we need is to throw in is a little AirCal and Western Airlines into the mix and I'll get my "Angelflights" pants and "Members Only" jacket back on! :Tounge:
