San Francisco Giants Opening Day, April 11, 2000 Poster

This 22 x 28 inch aerial poster of San Francisco is a view created on Opening Day, April 11, 2000 at San Francisco's baseball stadium, ATT park, also once known as SBC park and PacBell park, home of the San Francisco Giants. San Francisco Giants' baseball park in San Francisco is the first privately financed stadium in major league baseball since Dodger Stadium in 1962. With a seating capacity of 41,503 the park has a unique setting at the edge of San Francisco bay, with outstanding seats--the first row of seats is only 48 feet from homeplate. The Goodyear blimp was flying and broadcasting overhead on this day. The poster also shows a containership emerging from the fog entering San Francisco bay beneath the Golden Gate bridge, an audience of boats in McCovey Cove adjacent to the ballpark, and provides an excellent view of San Francisco's South Beach marina.

Aerial Archives and the current Sonoma County Crop Report

aerial photo Sonoma Valley vineyards Maycamas Mountains

This aerial photograph of the vineyards in the Sonoma Valley and on the slopes of the Mayacamas Mountains in the fall was featured on the cover of this year's Sonoma County crop report. The report outlines the current state of Sonoma County agriculture. The report indicates that 2013 rainfall was the lowest recorded in Sonoma County history in the last 120 years. Heavy rains in Nov and Dec of 2012 mitigated the impact of the dry 2013 conditions somewhat and the total dollar value of Sonoma County's agricultural output increased by 4%. The report confirmed that 2013 provided an excellent growing season for winegrapes, resulting in high quality and quantity. More than 270,000 tons of winegrapes valued at over $600 million were processed, which represents the largest winegrape harvest in Sonoma County history.

Beyond the exhibit hangar of Aircraft Spruce & Specialty toward the runways is the FAA control tower, the busiest control tower in the world during the event. The FAA has staffed a tower at the EAA convention since the 1960s. FAA controllers compete to work the event which is known among controllers as the “Super Bowl” of air traffic control. More than 10,000 airplanes arrive for the event. Many thanks to Don Voland of Aero Optics, Inc and Nick Anderson, the pilot who flew the Bell-47 helicopter from which these aerial photographs were created.
