A Day of Spotting @ KLAX | 15NOV20

Hello, everyone! A few weeks back, I decided to take a trip out to Los Angeles for one night on the rare occasion that my dad would be out there for work on a weekend. As I was alone, I couldn’t really go anywhere other than a few spots. On to the pictures, I guess.

Equipment

Canon EOS 4000D
Tamron SP 70-300mm

Location: H Hotel Garage
Settings: 1/800 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 109mm

B-18001, a 5 year old 777-300ER coming in over downtown operating as CI20 from Taipei Taoyuan.

Location: H Hotel Garage
Settings: 1/2000 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 218mm

A7-ANE, a 2 year old A350-1000 operating as QR739 from Doha. Fun fact, this was the 4th time I’ve spotted this exact aircraft (@AndrewWu 😉)

Location: H Hotel Garage
Settings: 1/1600 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 300mm

A6-EQC, a 3 year old 777-300ER arriving from Dubai as EK215.

Location: H Hotel Garage
Settings: 1/1600 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 300mm

D-AIXE, a 3 year old A350-900 still wearing the Lufthansa old colors, operating LH456. Catch these birds while you can, they’re being repainted soon due to paint quality issues with the entire A350 fleet. This is also @Moritz’s favorite plane.

After eating lunch and meeting up with @Asher on another garage, I snuck him up onto the H Hotel deck for golden hour.

Location: H Hotel Deck
Settings: 1/00 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 300mm

JA789A, a 10 year old 777-300ER painted in ANA’s BB-8 livery coming in as NH106. This photograph is better than yours @Cameron_Stone

Location: H Hotel Deck
Settings: 1/800 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 300mm

Location: H Hotel Deck
Settings: 1/800 f/8.0 ISO 100 @ 300mm

It’s all about knowing how to use your equipment to get the best out of it. Editing is half the game as well.
