I split my time between Ventura County, Los Angeles County and Orange County.
My home is in Ventura County (westlake village actually), i go to USC so I live in southcentral Los Angeles during the school year and I work in huntington beach.
Anyway, as far as LAX is concerned, there are a couple of locations that I spot at...IN-N-OUT is one, the supermarket on sepulveda also, but I have to say that I do the best spotting at good old Parking Lot C.
Parking Lot C is right behind the two...northern? i guess runways and you get a constant stream of incoming planes.
Also it is free to park there for the first 2 hours
So far have not been harrassed by the popo.
But I am still a novice spotter and so would definitely like to hear about better locations etc.
I have heard that the other side of the airport is good, near the beach where you can get the planes taken off but haven't ventured over there yet.

i dont live in LA, but i visit there frequently and spot there often. so far, i dont see Imperial Hill mentioned. while i like the In-N-Out spot, it doesnt let me watch the traffic on the south complex. from Imperial Hill you can pretty much see the entire airport. no hassles from anyone and your usually accompanied by many other spotters.
just thought i should mention it.
Well nothing's dead down here, just a little tired

I live in Ventura County, the same region where AirxLiban lives (I've never met him though).
If a meeting is to occur, I might be interested in attending. Mind you, I've never been plane spotting in my life, I normally just look at the pictures of the aircraft in books, or look at them through the terminal windows when I travel...
BTW this meeting had better not be of the sort engaged in by the other LAX spotters club (mentioned in the Non Av forum) .

I guess it's still to early to choose a certain day. But as soon as I have arrived Michel and I will talk and then announce the meeting day on the forum! I think it will take place in the week between Sept.4 and 10.
