Taxi back to London? Why didn't it fly back instead? Only joking. Very nice image. Night shots are my favorite.

Fantastic capture... Love night time images of my work place!
What is the fleet in the background? Are they all private/lux charters?

Not an easy capture at night, especially with all the lights of the strip. Excellent pic of my hometown. 5/5

Very Awsome picture. And to the UK visitor, the fleet in the background is for flying government workers to Area 51, the secret military base.

Perfect exposure. Great plane, great place. I just keep coming back to look again. My new desktop.
The Janet fleet of 737s in the background is the DoD's airline, ferrying workers to and from Area 51 and other secret sites in the desert, but shhh! don't tell anyone...

Great shot of BA in Vegas! As for the fleet in the background? Well, lets just say that it's a US government charter carrier and leave it at that. (cue in X-Files theme music)

The 737's in the background are Janet flights that operate to Area 51 and Tonopah Test Range. The only transport government workers

Thanks for the replies everyone about the "Janet" fleet... Very interesting.
I have to say, BNLG is looking rather spick and span... She has obviously had a wash... No jetty marks around D1 or D2... Lovely!
