Update 10/5: Neal Allen took some great photos of CDF air support fighting this fire. They
can be found on his flickr account .
A small vegetation fire on the east bank of Lake Anderson is currently being attacked by
CAL FIRE air and ground units. Two tankers circling plus helicopter air support. Fire is in
the vicinity of 3995 East Dunne Avenue. Fortunately, this fire could be controlled while
there was still enough light for close-in air attack. The cause is believed to be a downed

Flight tracking addendum - follow the boss! :)
For example... if you work for eBay, you might notice that their Gulfstream V is headed
from San Jose to Manchester New Hampshire today. How do we know? Well, if you check
the scheduled departures from SJC you will see flight N159JA, a GLF5 leaving at 10am for
MHT. Checking the FAA N-Number registry reveals the owner for N159JA as EBAY INC.
Happy bidding! :)
Don't work at eBay ? Well HP's Gulfstreams are N608WB and N628BD. Then there's N2N
registered to one Steven "still alive" Jobs. If you see flights with the code TECxxx and
aircraft E135 they are from Intel's fleet of Embraer ERJ-135ER jets, most likely making runs
to Hillsboro OR or Sacramento CA to service Intel's major sites in those regions. I'm sure
you can find your company's private ride if you look hard enough!
Also note that the airport activity departure and arrival times are a bit funky right now.
Some appear to be standard time instead of daylight savings and others seem to use the
destination time zone for the departure point too e.g. west to east coast private jet flights
like the eBay one mentioned above which actually left at around 8am PDT !

Testing a new flight tracking feature courtesy of AirNav Systems. You can view all flight
activity for a given airport or aircraft or airline. See arrival and departure information or
just watch flight tracks overlaid on Google maps. Flight data includes freight and private
aircraft e.g. executive jets, so if you know your CEO is coming to town keep an eye on
him/her with us. Use the custom search feature which is very powerful.
Check it out here.
Note that this interface is fairly new and definitely has some rough edges. All flight track
data is delayed by at least 5 minutes for security reasons. Use at your own risk.

Fog is back and temperatures will be much cooler for the next few days. Take a breather
from the 100+ heat because it might be back by the weekend.
