Spotting @ KLAX

I went down to LAX yesterday and was really lucky to get two a380s landing right as I pulled up. It was the perfect weather for it too. I hope you enjoy! I was using a Canon 5D with a 24-70mm lens. I started out by the InNOut by the runway but moved to stand right next to the approach lights which allowed me to see right underneath. There was a delta a350 but I was unable to get it as it was taking off 24L.

Emirates a380


Air France a380

Air Canada a320

American Eagle e175 (Really able to tell how close they were – no zoom)

American 777-200

Delta 717-200

Delta a321

Alitalia 777 (Pretty low approach, got it right as it passed over)

I hope you all enjoy!

It’s really awesome! I saw the emirates flight on approach when I was driving so I made sure to get there on time. I got out of the car right as it flew over.

That doesn’t seem like an Alaska 737, but nice shots.

I believe it’s in the old livery but I have another angle so I’ll check.

I think it is an Alaska 737 as you can see the greenish line running past the fuselage

telltale sign was the grey thrust reverser caps

The front gear compartment is not of a 737, 737’s look like this
