    LAX - 3/24/2011 (Day 1 of 4 - Image Heavy)

    Planned a four day spotting trip to LAX. Met lots of fantastic folks (Larry, Josh, and Brian), as met up with Mark (Heeshung) on Friday.

    DAY 1
    Once I arrived I headed for Imperial Hill, the weather was not the best. Mist and rain arrived towards late afternoon which cut the evening spotting hours short. Not many special arrivals on day 1, but the next following days were nothing short of awesome (shots from the ramp and night shots which I'll be posting in the very soon).

    Fiji


    JAL


    China Eastern


    AeroMexico


    Asiana and Allegaint


    United (2 for the price of 1)


    United




    Delta smoking


    United


    727 - San Jose Sharks??? (suicide shot taken from the off ramp of the highway)


    Singapore rotating off RWY 25R


    Emirates rotating off RWY 25R


    ANA Endless Discovery taxing to the gate


    UPS arrival


    Mas Air departing off RWY 25L


    Atlas arriving and heading towards the cargo facility


    Waited around in the mist to catch the Turkish with its new tail scheme depart off the gate.

    I will have to hit you both up for tipsif I end up planning my trip to LA at the end of the summer. LAX is still the front-runner in the list of places I want to make a weekend out of the end of August.

    Wow you got the Royal treatment? Josh May! Larry just got the 700 or 7000 and was very excited! That is a sick body. Glad you met up.

    Nice catch on the 727, yes it does fly the San Jose Sharks hockey team around, and it belongs to Fry's Electronics.

    Great pics Mark. Thanks for the compliment. Your night pics are awesome. Too bad I didn't stay long enough to catch the Virgin America and the A380 push back. I had a great time spotting with you, Josh and Brian. Hey Nick, when are you coming out here?
