LAX Spotting Today

Thu Sep 19, 2002 4:38 am

I am about to go pick up Udo who is visiting here from Germany. Can someone tell me how to get to the In N' Out which is from what I hear THE place to spot. Also, what about Imperial Hill or any other decent spots? If anyone wants to join us, we will be at In N' Out at about 3:30 pm.

Thanks in Advance, Tommy

The In'N'Out is right on Sepulveda, next to the threshold of the northernmost runway (24R I think it is).

Yep it's 24R. The best way if you're coming from Long Beach is to get off the 405N at Manchester then make a left and go all the way to Sepulveda. Make a left on Sepulveda and In n Out will be on your right hand side about 4 blocks down. I will try to meet you guys there. South complex is more interesting though. The majority of widebody action is there because of the longer runways. 24R is 8,925 feet long while 25L is 11,096 feet long and 50 feet wider than 24R.

By the time I post this, you're probably already there, but for those who want to go and don't know, another way is to get off the 105 west at Sepulveda, and that takes you under runways 25L/R. Stay in the center or left lane and after you pass the threshold for 24R (the landing one) then it will be rigt there on the left corner. Turn left and "attempt" to find a parking space. You really can't miss it. Stevie Wonder could find this place!

Thanks guys for all the help. We had some pretty good spotting. I met up with Udo and Ben88. We definitely saw a lot of action. Too many planes to list but some highlights were Aer Lingus A330, Aeroflot 767, China Southern 777, Eva Air 747, Korean AIr 747, Lufthansa 747, Air France 747, Singapore AIrlines 747, and Virgin Atlantic 747 and A340.
