Sunday Is Spotter Appreciation Day.

Aviation art, picnic tables, and the pièces de résistance, an elevated photography platform.  What's not to like?

Threefer Thursday - More Qantas A380 Hanger News From LAX.

Whilst the new Qantas A380 hanger is coming along nicely, the real news is it appears Qantas has now moved their maintenance operations out of the old TWA hanger, and they are now parking RON aircraft on their new ramp along Pershing Drive.

In the above photos, the first was taken from Pershing Drive, the second is of the now vacated TWA hanger, and the third is the A380 hanger still under construction.
