747 Departed SJC


#1

I just saw a 747 Leave SJC at about 3:56 PST today, but can’t find any info on it. Anyone have some info on this flight? very rare to see a 747 in San Jose.

Question… Was the aircraft primarily white, and did it look like it had a rather large tail elevator for a B747?

If so, keep in mind that SJC is home to Fry’s, and they have their own plane:

No, it didn’t look like that. It was likely the San Jose Sharks flying to Sweden.


#5

Is it a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looked like a big Tylenol? :laughing: Sorry, couldn’t resist. :laughing: :laughing:

I saw the SP leave on 30L. It was a beautiful sight at SJC. I saw though as it banked right and headed south on the socal track. If it were going to Sweeden, I would think it would head like 010 not 190. Just a thought here. Anyone in the know?


#7

Yep.

The LOUPE1 departure has them turning south towards SJC then back north again.

Looks like it’s still the same plane though. Meaning the Fry’s plane is the Ballet and Sharks plane in the photos.
