This video serves as my goodbye to the United Airlines Boeing 747.
The primary purpose of this trip was to make sure to capture a bunch of footage of the United Airlines Boeing 747-400s before they are eventually all retired.
I’ve been lucky enough to have watched them takeoff and land at Chicago O’Hare all through my growing up, filming them throughout recent years and eventually even riding on one from San Francisco to O’Hare . You can watch that video here:

Even my favorite airplane for a time was N121UA, the Star Alliance Livery Boeing 747-400 before it was eventually changed to the standard United-Continental livery…
I love this location overlooking the Alpha and Bravo taxiways and Terminal 1 ramp at San Francisco International Airport KSFO/SFO…. it’s a place you could spend all day every day and see so much awesome airport action. SFO has some other great spotting locations but this one is my favorite even if it does require you to clear airport security to get to….
Takeoffs in the distance are on runway 28L-28R.
