I was spotting at LAX approach last week, and I saw the afternoon arrival of the Virgin 747-400. Beautiful plane, I really like Virgin...I'm jealous...hope you enjoy the voyage. Make sure you have a seat on the left of the plane (when facing the nose) if you want to see downtown LA and Westwood as you approach, that way you also avoid the afternoon sun. So, anyways, I was spotting on 22rd of January, and I saw it land on the north side of LAX operations. It taxied down and docked at the international terminal. Expect to see a couple of Quantas, a KLM and a BA 747 around you as gates may vary from day to day. THe plane I saw, if it serves the same route daily was not a silver dream, but has the old livery whihc is just as charming. I took a picture or two, hopefully I will have it developed from Costco by next week and post it online, even if it does not go into the database.
Enough ramling...enjoy the flight...and please report back to reward all my typing.
