Remarks: The lovely triple seven ER from JAL departs KLAX in beautiful conditions. It wasn't too long ago that they were using the 744 on this route and now all the 744's have gone from the fleet totally. It's nice to photograph the 773's though. In the background at the TBIT the other Asian heavies can be seen at the gate preparing for departure while the Lufthansa 744 from Frankfurt pulls into the stand in the corridor. (5D2/70-200F2.8LIS)
Remarks: Lined up on 28L which A6-ECS lands on 28R and N119UA waits between both thresholds. Quite a heavy scene at SFO. Both the 773's are very young (less than 2 years old) while the 747 sandwiched in between is 12.5 years old.
