LAX landing cockpit view

In Watch on February 23, 2011 at 7:29 am

This is a gorgeous video of the approach into LAX from the cockpit on a southbound flight:

I just flew this again on Monday, and the thing that always surprises me is how low you are already when you pass downtown/the 110 freeway/USC on the last little leg before landing.  In the video this is right at 2:00 when the screen flashes “Watts.”  That’s the 110 below at that point, and if you’re sitting on the right side of the plane you have a great view of downtown.
