Not the best lighting conditions but spectacular condensation effects visible as this United 747-400 passes Coyote Point on its final approach to SFO after a long flight from Asia. All UAL 747s have since been retired by the airline.
Delivered to USAir as N922AU in March 1994, this aircraft was re-registered as N935UW in 2007 and had winglets fitted in 2009. It remained in this Star Alliance livery until late 2010, when it was repainted in the standard US Airways colors. It remained with American Airlines for a few years after the takeover of US Airways, but was parked in 2017. Most recently, it has been converted into freighter configuration and now flies with SF Airlines in China as B-1173.
Delivered in March 2005, this aircraft now sports a tattoo-like livery promoting the 35th anniversary of the Tokyo Disney Resort. The wing of the aircraft appears to slice through the heads of Donald, Pluto, and Mickey, but Minnie and Goofy look thrilled.
Del. January 1993 to Cayman Airways as VR-CAA, and later served with Carnival Air Lines as N404KW, with Olympic as SX-BKK, with Sky Airlines as TC-SKG, and most recently with Blue Air of Romania as YR-BAR.
This aircraft is seen performing a re-enactment of the first official air mail flight in the world at the 2010 Wings over Wine Country Air Show. On February 17, 1911, Fred Wiseman carried three letters between Petaluma, California and Santa Rosa, California. Update: On April 20, 2013, this aircraft made an emergency crash landing in a Santa Rosa-area vineyard, flipping over and coming to rest inverted. Fortunately, the pilot survived and the aircraft was declared repairable.
Delivered July 2001 to Lufttransport-Unternehmen as D-ALTE, before being transferred to LTU's Austrian subsidiary in April 2004.

It was withdrawn from use by Air Berlin in January 2013, but within a few months was flying again in Austria, but this time with Austrian Airlines as OE-LBM.
This aircraft has had a long and varied history, being delivered in December 1995 to TAM Linhas Aéreas and serving later with Mandarin Airlines in Taiwan as B-12296; Contact Air & OLT Express as D-AFKE; Denim Air as PH-MJP, during which time it flew for Greenland Express and Sky Greenland; and, most recently, as UP-F1015 for Bek Air of Kazakhstan.

Back in 2008, the A321 was a fairly rare substitution for the usual A319s and A320s operated by Iberia on the MAD-TXL sector. This A321 was one of several Iberia aircraft to be named after endangered birds endemic to Spain. EC-JZM was named for the Spanish Imperial Eagle, one of the rarest raptors in Europe.
A good history on this one: It was HS-PGO with Bangkok Airways, then EC-CRO with Spanair, before becoming OH-BLQ with Blue1, and was delivered to Delta in March 2016. It's nice to see the 717s operating up and down the west coast with Delta since they provide a break from the ubiquitous 737s and A320 family aircraft now that the MD-80s are almost all gone.
