    HMB is beautiful. You'll get some great stuff out there. If you make it up to the city you could try getting footage of the GGB from crissy field, or the bay bridge from rincon park. Some guy flew a phantom out to Alcatraz from fisherman's wharf..pier 41 I think. Treasure Island has some cool looking abandoned buildings, and would also be a good vantage point to get video of boats or the new eastern span of the bay bridge.

    One thing to note, there is a small airport in HMB so you'll wanna make sure you steer clear of it. Planes making the south to north approach get pretty low over town.
