West Coast, Best Coast: The Return | Spotting at KLAX

HELLO COMMUNITY!

Apparently, I have now made it a habit of showing up at airports a couple weeks before Infinite Flight Meetups but never being able to make it to said meetups (first Zurich, now Los Angeles). Despite some fairly non-California-like weather, it ultimately ended up working out as you shall soon see. Photos were taken with @Kamryn, @Altaria55, and @Cameron_Stone (@Transport_Hub went home early because he’s lame) at a variety of spots including Sepulveda Boulevard, Imperial Hill, Quik Park, and Vista Del Mar.

Gear: Sony α7iii + Sony 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 GM OSS & [sometimes] Sony 1.4X TC


ANA 787-9 “R2-D2” [JA873A]

Good to see you again.


Air Tahiti Nui 787-9 [F-ONUI]

This livery at this spot are the embodiment of California vibes.


United Airlines 737-900(ER) [N36447]

Pure luck, I am a skill issue.


KLM 787-10 [PH-BKD]

The 787 can have some palm tree, as a treat.


LATAM 777-300(ER) “Galaxy’s Edge” [PT-MUA]

Please ignore the absolutely mid lighting, livery cool.


Condor A330-900 [D-ANRA]

Beach towels and palm trees.


Korean Air 747-8i [HL7644]

Skyline shots just don’t hit the same on 24L.


Hawaiian Airlines A330-200 [N391HA]

Is this LAX? Is this HNL? World may never know.


National Air Services A318-100 ACJ [VP-CKH]

Well this was a surprise.


Asiana Cargo 747-400(F) [HL7423]

Thanks for landing 24L, hope you enjoyed your 20 minute taxi.

That equipment is appropriately $4k-$5k for that kinda quality?

I can’t tell if you’re saying “damn I gotta spend that much to get higher quality” or “damn this guy’s photos are low quality for that kind of money” but empirically the answer is my setup is around $3k on the used market but you definitely do NOT need to spend that much to get high quality photos.

No i completely understand what your saying. I know it’s not a black and white between equipment and cost for similar results.

Yeah, I tend to edit my photos more for art than quality so I’ll pick photos sometimes that are aesthetically pleasing rather than technically perfect and thus I may not be the best metric for what my gear can do strictly quality wise.

Here’s a somewhat good example (although it is 1920 long edge) of the quality when I actually focus on quality.
