Earlier this year I was photographing the new Rosenbauer Panther ARFF units at LAX. It was just after lunch and I was in front of ARFF 80, the airport fire station midway between parallel runways. Three Airbus 380 planes crossed Taxiway Romeo from 6R-24L heading to the International Terminal.
When you like big toys like I do, photographing big fire trucks is great but when a giant airplane comes by … well that’s just a bonus. The firefighters told me that five A380s come in around that time every day.
First was a British Airways flight.
Then planes from Singapore Airlines and Lufthansa passed by as I had an ARFF in position.
It would have been incredible if the arriving A380s from Emirates, Air France, and Korean Air would have come by as well.
