Great pics! However, maybe add more details. Like you could add where the flight came in from (if you knew where).

Yeah I tried to keep track with Flightradar24 screenshots but I got about 200 planes in that time 😂 Thanks for the suggestion and next I’ll work on keeping track ;)

Nice photos bud! As @RTG113 said, it’s always nice to get flight details if you can. However, I understand that LAX is super busy 😉

If I may also ask, what kind of camera do you use, and with what kind of lens?

Dang, the spotting pictures from the community just keep getting better and better. These are really good shots you got. My favorites are the Lufty 747-8, the Swiss 777, and the Emirates whale. I really need to up my spotting game if I want to have any chance against these amazing photos.
Nice work

You can still get the data. Remember you have pictures of the planes meaning…you can look up the tail number and airline.:) @jet_centric

*slightly embarrassed * 😂 It’s a Sony RX - 100 (no interchangeable lenses) but it’s a decent camera anyhow

I have a camera similar to that, it is so embarrassing when I go to the airport to planespot and the others have huge cameras and I’m just there like ;-;


Once I went to the airport and there was a 8/9 year old kid with a huge camera 0.o
