Well Wietse, it is a crap shoot most of the time, today we did 3 shore lines and 1 LAX
mini route trying to get something, most of the time we got empty handed but were so close, due to the wrong timing, there were 747s takeoffs only after we went pass over LAX
for Santa Monica and Hawthorn each way.
Luck came at the end of the day, oh god, what a plane we got! A340-600 of China Eastern...but I can tell you on average 1/10 occasion you get something that nice (Derek told me)....keep in touch if traffic are busy the tower So Cal approach may denied the corridor access or limit the Cessna over 4500 feet instead of 3500 feet. Also keep in touch from a Cessna on a taped window shooting down is extremly irritating, against strong wind and lot of movements making photos blurry easily....it really wasn't easy as anyone can imagine but if you decided to try I can help you to arrange when you have your dates set.
