Real Pictures over the Los Angeles Basin Area

Recommended Posts

These are some pictures my wife took while we were out flying on a Sunday afternoon. One is of Long Beach, one is of us at 4500' in the LAX special flight rules area and the other is us on final into Hawthorne airport (KHHR). Enjoy!Damon

I love LA! I got my private out of SNA, I used to pick my sister up at SBA using the special VFR corridor over LAX (where it looks like you took at least a couple of those picks.) I moved to North Dakota to go to college and all, but I'll be back in SNA after 4 years, thanks a lot for reminding me of home!

>I'm going to LA, San Francisco, Vegas, Grand Canyon ,etc >next year, cant wait! :-) That's funny. I'm from LA (well, Pasadena), and I went to San Francisco, Vegas and the Grand Canyon all in the last year....Next up is the Pacific North-West--Seattle and British Columbia. But I can wait for that trip...after all, it's only another week-and-a-half to go.

Allblack,On the wharf where you can see the round dome, that's where the Spurce Goose (sp?) is housed. The large ship the Queen Mary is a floating hotel.

Thanks John, but we're not "quite" that out of touch down here...Let me be clearer. I meant the island between the QM and the end of the wharf.What's that called?CheersAllblack
