Departure from BUR and an overview of the terminal that Southwest and US Airways utilise. You can also see in the background what looks like a cloud, but is in fact a plume of smoke rising up to 20,000 feet from the wildfires that have plagued LA during a recent dry spell. Overall there is a layer of hazy smoke covering the mountains in the background [Nikon D3]

This is a very good photo, yet the sight of the smoke is saddening.

An awesome view of BUR! I remember my first flight from there to SFO on United - the Airbus lifted off at the 4,000 foot mark. Thanks for posting another great photo Andrew. Your work is always top quality!

What a tight packed airport. the airplane is quite close to the terminal and if the other runway was active a taxiing aircraft could collide with another airplane on the runway if it was off center

Awesome photo, that runway is extremely close though, im guessing they dont use that one very often

*sigh* your picture makes me miss home! To the comment below, actually it's very active, as they use it for arrivals while the one where the plane took off from is used for departures.
