    LAX 4/23/11

    Greetings from Los Angeles! Spring time is here in California, and the sun is staying up long enough to get photos of the late afternoon arrivals, of which I was very excited to get photos of Philippines and China Southern. The weather was great yesterday, so I decided to stay out for the whole day and hit several different locations. The light got better as the day went on. It was great to catch some special schemes, as well as the usual LAX traffic. I was hoping to see the United retro, but got the Continental retro instead, can't really complain. Take care, Brian.

    Is that China cargo a sub or regular now? Well done!

    Thanks for the comments guys. The China Cargo is pretty regular, but I don't see it as often as Yangtze River Cargo, Asiana Cargo, or Cathay Cargo. Yesterday was so strange cargo-wise. Saturdays is usually pretty busy with freighters, but the only ones I saw were the China Cargo, Mas Air Cargo, and ABX.

    Great shots Brian! I have definitely got to make it out to LAX for some spotting. I wish we got China southern and Air New Zealand here on the east coast.
