Boeing 777-300ER, Virgin Australia
@San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco, CA
For the first time in almost 30 years, American college football was played in Sydney, Australia. Dubbed the “Sydney Bowl”, the Cal Bears kicked off their season playing the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, which meant both teams had lengthy travel logistics. That accounted for the rare American appearance of a Virgin Australia 777 that was chartered to bring the Cal Bears back to the Bay Area. This aircraft is one of five 777’s that are in the Virgin Australia fleet. Nikon D500 w/80-400mm, processed with Aperture.
