I couldn't see the 747's shadow (neither on Google Maps nor in Google Earth). Did anyone else find the plane's shadow?
In case anyone's interested, the 747 looks to be 3.1 nautical miles (3.57 statue miles/5.75 km) from touchdown on 24L at LAX
(thanks to Google Earth's Ruler feature).
The only time an aircraft has too much fuel is when it is on fire.
