A Windy Day At LAX

LAX Spotting!

During a break in my day today, I decided to grab at bite at In-N-Out and planespot on the grass adjacent. Saw some great stuff and watched the aircraft struggle in the 20 knot crosswinds!

Date/Time: 15 December, 21:00Z
Equipment: iPad 7th Generation, iPhone XS Max
Location: In-N-Out burger in front of runways 24L and 24R

No major editing were done to these photos.

The Photos:


Getting off the freeway, pulled over to get a shot of these FedEx planes!


Walking from my car, had to hurry this one!


Two jumbos in a row!


An American Embraer jet, this is special since I flew this exact aircraft in 2016!



Not much can be said, but two photos of the BA 747!


First time seeing Tennessee One!


Normal Southwest 737, but this one had a buttery landing.


And to finish the day, an ANZ 777!

How were the photos?

i did in hawaii its pretty good

Nice pictures!

I personally don’t care that they were taken with an iPad; there’s little to no difference between your pictures and those taken with a crazy expensive camera. Very nice job 👍

Also, for those butter haters out there, butter isn’t even bad for your health unless you eat a whole freaking stick in one sitting. Anything’s bad if you eat too much of it. But, let’s not turn this into a butter vs grease war though :)

I know that I’m supposed to be positive and stuff. I know it’s your opinion but there’s a major difference from iPad pictures and camera pictures. No hate just facts.

Ultra wide lens I guess. Any great photos he probably used the iPad to edit them

It was a quick lunch break, wasn’t really planning to spot.

If I was, I would’ve brought my Nikon.

Wow I went plane spotting just a week later! I went to a different spot though. If you want some pictures I can send you a PM.

Gonna be honest but even with the iPad these are some great pictures especially the a380 ones those things look huge from below. Good job.
