There was much speculation over where it was going to land and when. First it was Long Beach but its runway is too short. I could have had a front-row seat if it were there as I live in the flight pattern. Then the landing times changed from 5 minutes to 15 minutes to whatever.
I actually saw the plane from the backyard when it began its decent after circling for more than 3 hours, burning off fuel. But here are some stills from my video camera, taken from CBS2.
Thumbs-up to the pilot and crew for a great job getting this thing back on the ground safely.
