Perfect landing.

I'm not sure if it's a coincidence but the big ole' Cathay is landing on 24R, which is just a bit more than 2700m. It seems that perhaps all the 747s (and perhaps 777s) land on the 24s, which are the two shortest runways at LAX. Everytime there's a 747 at LAX on the finals, its 'heading for 24R'. Anyways, great shot. The runway number, touchdown point, and tire rubber skids are all visible! NICE!!
