Hello everyone,

I am so thrilled about the success of my website that I am going full throttle on it. We already have 233 airplane videos on http://www.flightlevel350.com. Anyway, I wanted to ask if anyone knows about good spotting airports in Southern California so I can shoot more videos for the website. I am most interested in the best place to spot aircraft at LAX. I've been there before but I think there has to be a better place. Thanks in advance!

Esteban M.

Since youre a professional spotter, why dont you get a professional spotters book, if you dont have one yet. Id recommend BUCHairports. Im verry happy with that book. It lists most Airports in the World with the best spotting places, what day time to get the best shots and what traffic its gets.

Emansilla, there's an incredible spot near LAX with views that are simply unreal:

The variety at LAX is second to none. Sometimes you get a view like this:

The In & Out Burger is located at the corner of Lincoln & Sepulveda. There's a tiny little area of green directly south of the restaurant that doubles as a park. It's really just a median area, but I've seen lots of people with cameras and binoculars.

SAN has some amazing places to video as well, but the variety is nowhere near what you'll find at LAX. I'm still praying for the return of British Airways as well as Air Canada...maybe LH would be interested?

Best of luck to you!!

Hey Emansilla,

My folks live in Orange county in the city of Tustin. Their home is located 3 mins from SNA. The flight path to one of the runways goes right over their home. On Red Hill close to Silver Birch Dr. I have spotted many AA 757, 737, and S80 flying overhead.

Don't forget about Long Beach California, great spotting location at Devry.
