8. Someone posted a vintage photo on Reddit of an SFO Helicopter Airlines helicopter landing at the Ferry Building. According to the photo's poster, darkeraqua, it took 8 minutes to fly between the airport and the Embarcadero on a chopper in the late 1960s. "Man, I’m glad that freeway isn’t there anymore," wrote Redditor ler_lar. "If you think about it, we have to thank the '89 Loma Prieta quake for the Embarcadero that we know today," added Theaow. "Why is the helicopter SFO service gone? And why hasn’t something else replaced it, like an express train ... or high speed ferry?" AutonomousHoag asked.
