This was taken when Air France took off for the first time with it's A380 service from San Francisco International Airport.

The jetliner had just disappeared into a fog bank over San Bruno, and I was putting the lens cap back on my camera when I suddenly saw this starting to take place.

After grabbing several shots, the plane ascended and was out of sight.

It was a good end to a long day of avoiding TSA and police as I searched for places to grab shots of Airliners taking off from this overly protected airport. A very nice end.
