    I will say that I'm glad to live in Iowa and not a coast state.

    Re: Plane almost hits Golden Gate Bridge

    I think it's a little bit of an optical illusion. The plane is not as close to the bridge as it appears. It looks at first like it is behind the bridge, but it is actually flying in front of it (from the viewing perspective.)

    Also, it could not have taken off from a moving treadmill.

    People always bring up 9/11 when ever this happens. How dumb can you get. Fear lives in to many people. Move on.

    Agreed, it's an optical illusion. Not a very close pass at all.

    Agreed. Except for the bolded...
