Ah…. summer time at LAX. There is always a cool breeze off the ocean to mix up the smells. By that I mean the smell of hamburgers cooking, the smell of the ocean not more than a couple of miles away. Oh, and let’s not forget that wonderful smell of burning rubber as the heavies hit the runway. Wonderful smells… for some of us. Here we see VS 23 passing the In-N-Out, as several young children pause to watch her pass before heading inside to have a burger. Local time 17:59.

I remembered an Air-India picture taken from the same place in 2005.(Photo ID: 1017460). Its funny because these days virgin and air-India livery looks kinda same.

Superb shot! This really gets you in the holiday mood; the beach, the palm trees, the burger restaurant. Thrilling!
For me, a budding airline pilot, there is no sight great enough than to see something which I aspire to fly, in action!

Great pic. The ocean is more than 2 miles away given that 24L is over 10,000'.

All photos by Paul is awesome! I visited LA a few months back, sure wish I would have went to this location to watch some birds come in. I also enjoy your detailed descriptions because you not only mention the aircraft, but the setting in which these photos are taken. Well done 5 stars.
