Capturing flight data at SFO and SFO Museum

This is historical data compiled by harvesting flight data throughout the day, aggregating it overnight and finally publishing atomic records for every flight that graces our runways. That’s interesting enough on the face of it but what we think is even more exciting is that every record contains pointers back to things already in the SFO Museum collection. … With only a few exceptions all of the airlines and gates and airports that comprise any given flight, on any given day, all have a pre-existing relationship with the objects in our collection.
