The Lineup - Arrival In San Francisco

  After the bungled attempt to retrieve the smuggled heroin the drug ring calls in two out-of-town crooks to take over.  They fly in from Miami.

Then ...  They fly in on a United DC-7 over the Golden Gate Bridge. Marin County to the north is at the top of the frame and the Presidio at the bottom.

... and Now,  there's a large tourist parking lot on each side of the bridge and on the northern side there's a marina at Horseshoe Bay, home of the Presidio Yacht Club.  Behind that is the former U.S. Army Post, Fort Baker, now housing the Discovery Museum and an upscale hotel - The Lodge At Cavallo Point.

 

Then ...   They land at Terminal 2 at San Francisco Airport, opened 4 years earlier in 1954 and known then as Central Terminal (map).

...and Now,   Today there are 4 terminals including the $1B international terminal opened in 2000.  Terminal 2 still looks the same from the runway although there's a new control tower being built behind it.
