Thunderstorms rolled in bringing Reagan National departures to a stand still for nearly two hours last week. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many departure planes parked so close together and not at a gate before. I could hear Fred Thompson say “stack ’em, pack ’em and rack ’em”! – from Die Hard II.

Had the chance while in Los Angeles for less than 48hrs to photograph aircraft taking off from LAX. My good friend and fellow photographer David Wittig knew a good spot. Even tried some night time photography as well. The first two images I’ll add some photo geekness to. They are with a Leica M9P and 135mm lens. Anyone who has tried or owned 135mm on a Leica knows it’s the hardest to focus with as the frame window is tiny, not to mention trying to photograph a fast moving object with it. Enjoy.
