Close call at KLAX, after some heavy traffic and great vectoring by Socal Approach, I came up on final to some confusion on the ground, which had my friend go around after a last minute departure clearance. Thankfully though I had a clear path to 25L, and was set to land, until I noticed a Northwest 747 taxiing right before the runway. He made an attempt to stop but ended up right in the middle of the approach path. By then it was too late, and I had to hope for the best. Mere feet came between us, but resulted in a buttery landing to the setting sun.
