A couple hundred feet overhead.

That's an impressive shot Mike! Looks like some nice evening light? Nothing like being that close to a 747!

Where was this taken and where were you located?

Wingman,
I was at LAX, at the east end of runway 24R. There's a small park there directly under the path of the planes.
I was surprised by the amount of photographers that were there. I'd say at least 10. I looked for some information on photographing around the airport and found an interesting article online from our local paper
http://www.dailybreeze.com/general-n...eld-day-at-lax

I'm sure there's nothing in the article that you don't already know but I was quite surprised.

One more, Just before touchdown. I hope the pilot is wearing some sunglasses.

Cool...the silhouette shot is fantastic..stands a good chance of being published on www.airliners.net. I don't get out to California often but LAX is on my list of places to visit and spot from/ Thanks also for the article...I had heard about the park by the IN-Out Burger place but not the one you were at. I'll be out there soon!

This was at In & out.
Send me a PM when you come to LA.

I head out to YVR (Vancouver Airport) when ever I can, there is a service road (public) that runs at the very end of the runway, holding is done over the Pacific Ocean, and I watch them in the holding patterns frequently at night when I take the ferry to the island.
