San Franciso - Tracy / Beechcraft Baron 58 (N2720V) / VFR

Just a 20-minute flight back to Tracy from SFO. I had forgotten that I had another of my Barons already parked at SFO. Now I have one at SFO and one at Tracy. My vast fleet spans the globe! (Almost.)

This flight was uneventful. SFO had aircraft lined up for take-off. I had two 747s in front of me, so I had to wait a long time in position before ATC let me depart. No sign of wake turbulence when I finally departed.

I just made a right downwind departure and then jumped on the 062 radial from SFO out to about 38 DME, at which point I turned towards Tracy and made a right downwind for 25. Both take-off and landing were very smooth. Weather was pretty cloudy, with just a tad of turbulence.
