Jobs took a helicopter ride with the then-mayor of San Jose, Tom McEnery, over the Coyote Valley south of that city to scout out land for a new Apple campus tucked into the scrub oaks, McEnery told the San Jose Mercury News in 2011. Apple bought the land but never proceeded with the plan before Jobs’s ouster in 1985.
