Looking Back, A Visit to LAX in 2007

In 2007, this scarce flying B-737-200 jet was a surprise to see, nowadays they’re almost non-existent.

Mid October, 2007 featured some very low air fares that led me cross country from my New Hampshire home to LAX, for a quick overnight visit. I planned to stay overnight right next to the airport and take the next morning’s flight home around noontime from Los Angeles.

One of the few special liveries I saw at LAX this trip, on one of the many B-747-400s at LAX.

My first afternoon was cloudy, but the next morning was beautifully clear and sunny.

Although I didn’t catch many specially-marked jets, I did get an Air Pacific – Fiji and a Japan Airlines B-747-400 with special colors though. And, I did add to my foreign airliner photos, which was the reason that I flew out for just a day or so. Most satisfying was photographing an ATI Stretch DC-8 and the AVIACSA Boeing 737-200 series jet.
