Default Highlights from lax

Took these on a visit to LAX earlier this year.

Jehan

Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 about to touch down on Rwy 24R after its non-stop journey from Singapore. That is one whale of an aircraft.



China Cargo Airlines Boeing 777 Freighter racing down Rwy 25L about to rotate.



Delta Boeing 767-300 heading out over the Pacific Ocean.

How did you get these great shots, Jehan? You couldn't get them without an aerodoodle of some kind.

Streets, I was able to arrange an air-to-air photo session over LAX in a chopper...really neat experience. Went up for about 70 minutes in a Robinson R44 , no doors. Got some great pictures as you can tell.

Great stuff Jehan.

Ive never seen any shots like these from LAX. I've never heard of any offerings of a helicopter rides to veiw LAX.

You can't beat that ride for a great view.

Did you get a chance or even bother to checking out any of the 3 regular photo spots while you were around LAX.

I don't think I would have bothered after getting shots like these.

Very cool.
