Location: Las Vegas LAX
Date: September 2013
Maarten Visser and I had a rendezvous arranged in LA with a flight booked for very early the next morning out of LAX to Las Vegas for the day. Bleary eyed but keen, we headed off to the Parking lot at Vegas where we were met with a strong cold breeze. Pretty cold in our shorts and T-shirts ! However the views are fantastic and some great shots of take-offs are to be had. Beware, you need a 500mm lens and in the wind it is difficult to get crisp photos.
At Midday we headed off to the landing threshold for some very clear landing shots. A late evening flight to LA gave us an excellent view of the Vegas lights. I have included some of the many flights that we saw to give you an idea of what you might see.
