That's a crazy angle. Only in LAX can you get an angle like that. *****

The photograph of the a/c from above plus the contrast between the a/c and the cars; movement versus stasis.

Very beautiful althought landing gear is down,but because of enought wind density or high speed,the flaps is not fully down!

This is a plastic model super imposed over a backdrop scenery & not the real plane. i land there often enough as i fly for virgin as a pilot & theres no flaps in at all during landing i would have had the flaps down a lot further that that if i was landing at lax.

Also what makes me think this is a plastic model on a back drop scenery is that there is no big open doors on the front landing gear leg. the front landing gear doors on g-vhot are huge. but they are non-existent is this shot. it is cleverly done though.

This is definitely not a model. The nose gear doors are correct and you can clearly see the shadow from the pitot tubes and the landing lights and nav lights. Great shot Sam, one of the best from LAX!
