   Of all United's stations, one might consider SFO marginally safer
   since SFO is United's only maintenance base and a number of planes
   spend the night at SFO (or longer) for maintenance checks.  

With general aviation aircraft it seems to be the case that the first
flight after maintenance (100 hr, annual, etc) is the most prone to have
problems.  I'm very leary of a plane that just got out of maintenance.
I do full runups and a couple of circuits in the pattern before I take
one out any further from the airport.
