    KLAX 12-11-23 » 12-11-26

    The weather wasn't great, the traffic was meh, ATC wouldn't let us go anywhere, and my lens choice was not idea. But, still worth it.

    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    R-22. Tiny little thing. Very fun though. ATC was being uncooperative tho, so not much in the way of opportunity. The MD-11 was taken from the Crowne Plaza hotel parking structure (where I was staying).

    You are right. I was mostly angry with my lens choice. Should have put on the teleconverter on my 300 (or used my D90 instead of my D700). The folks at Star Helicopters were aces.

    The place to go, it seems. I was glad to catch it.

    Thanks! The Crowne Plaza is my go-to hotel now given you can have 'legit access' to the parking structure. Busy, but no one bothered me over 3 days.

    Thanks! It was the last shot of the day, and the highlight!

    I have made a mental note of the Crowne Plaza parking spot

    All great shots, that is a unique perspective of the Il-76
