LAX Spotting Nov 2 Anyone?

Sat Oct 29, 2005 10:36 am

Well im flying into LAX on Wed Nov 2nd. My flight comes in at around 9:30am. My original plans were to take the flyaway to VNY and go straight home, but then I was thinking that I would hate to go home since I was already at LAX. So is anyone free to meet up with me for a day of shooting?

I'll be in LAX tomorrow morning, Oct. 29. I guess we'll be a few days apart. Have fun.

I have some new developments for my trip. My mom will pick me up after arriving then take me to pick up a car that I will be borrowing till Saturday. So I should be at LAX around 11:30-12 and stay till the sun goes down. I also plan on going on Thur & Fri and possibly Sat. morning. I am on a quest to capture "Wunala Dreaming". I always miss it arriving or departing so if anyone can give me its arrival or departure schedule beginning on Wed that would be great.

Hmm, I'm off that day. Maybe I'll head up there. It's just a hop, skip and a jump away!

Ralph, you know I am always down to go to LAX. Maybe I will get off work a little early to get down there by 4 or so. Either way I know we'll get some shots while you're in SoCal. And thanks for the heads up about U2's Airbus at VNY. I'll show you the edited shots through Yahoo later.

Hi Ralph

I think you should see the new Thai A340-600 service ETA at 0905 and goes at noon time. (and also VS A340-600)

Good luck!

REALLY! that is greeeeeeeat... Does THAI usually depart from the South Complex and if I happen to miss it tomorrow will I have a chance to see it Thur,Fri or Sat? I did happen to notice the VS 346 on the tracker the other day, does anybody know how long that will be in effect for?

Hi Ralph

THe VS 346 is daily, replacing VS7/8 former 747-400 service.

Thai is operating 4 times a week, Friday is your next chance, then Sunday, usually it departs on the South, which is a longer runway, however, it also depends on where it is parked, hopefully at South Bradley or West Parking. It should leave around 12pm ish.

Well if anybody plans on going out to LAX tomorrow, I will be wearing a black bomber jacket, my hair is in desperate need of a haircut so it will be spikey, and I will be shooting with 20D/100-400L. Im going to try to get to the hill by 11-11:30. Matt Wallman (Waketurbulence) will also join me, but at around 3pm. I hope to meet some photog's there.

HAHAHA, Tulsa is not really on my list, but Danny, you can show me WN 73's and RJ's anytime. Just think about when you are in LA in January with clear skies and a double double from In'n'Out. Ralph is so mean he might bring some In'n'Out back for you just to show you what you missed out on.
