Spotting At LAX: Best Spot For Night Photos?

Sun Dec 08, 2013 1:34 am

Hi all!

I am planning to be at LAX for spotting next week, and want to get some good photos!

I'd like to go the famous In and Out burger location, as well as Imperial Hill. Any other suggestions?

I would also love to get some great night exposures such as these:

Where were these photos taken from? Are there any other spots to go to get some great night-exposures of aircraft at LAX? Please note that I will not have access to a ladder.  

Thanks in advance for your help, I really appreciate it!

All the best,

Calvin

I think the QF 744 and the Virgin Australia photos were taken from the top of the central parking structure (between TBIT and Terminal 3 for the QF 744)

If I remember correctly, it's the parking garage for Terminal 3. The sign before you enter says "P3".
