Normally, I am very happy when I can catch two aircarft in action in one frame. I never thought that I would be able to catch three in one frame until today. I saw the American B777 turning off 25L, the Continental B757 rolling down 25R, and the United B777 on finals for 24R and I thought......maybe, just maybe. Well, here is the product of a lot positive thinking as they all came together as I wanted...my own personal Christmas present! [Nikon D3]

I think there might be Delta in this pic. Right below the 757 left main gear, it looks like there is a tail with the Delta colors. Albeit a very small part of a Delta aircraft.

Great shot! There is a tail visible right below the Continental's landing gear. Delta Perhaps?

Great job and the result is very cool. The only thing that would make this pic even better that would be another 777 instead of the 757 but you can't have it all, right? ;)
Congratulations to one of the best shots on A.Net.

I love this. You obviously had to figure out the best spot to capture three different stages of flight. Very creative and great depth of field clarity.

Delta is in there, you can only see a little sliver of the widget tail under one of the 757's gear. Isn't that UA 777 a little high?

Next shot to top this is 3 A380 in one frame. Keeping finger crossed, as LAX will eventually get A380 traffic from Emirates and Singapore to join Qantas for this potential shot.

Technically, you have a 4 in one! AA777, CO757, and UA777, but you also got a little Fronteir A320! Awesome! 5*+

I think it's actually a 5 in one! The TINIEST piece of a Delta is visible, look really closely near the left side main gear of the 757, and yes, it's a Boeing sandwhich, the best in the world :D =D
