My son and I had such a marvelous time at LAX a couple of weeks ago that we (and I do mean we) decided to return for round two.
After our last visit, my son woke up each morning asking if we were going to the “O-port” (as he calls it). His persistence moved me to schedule a re-visit last weekend. Heidi and August are preparing for an extended trip to Germany so I am trying to spend as much time with both of them prior to the trip.
We again parked near the In-N-Out and arrived just in time to watch a Korean Air A380 landing followed by an Asiana A380 minutes later (with a China Eastern 777 sandwiched in-between).
Once again, we had a great time planespotting. For whatever reason, for the second consecutive week, the highlight was the Delta Airbus A350 bound for Shanghai for Augustine. He also enjoyed the KLM 747 once again, an American 787, SAS A330, Delta A330, Fiji Airways A330, and Qantas 787.
After lunch, we returned to the car and appropriately bookended our day with another Korean Air A380 landing (as well as Southwest 737 and Delta 717).
I wish I had been just a little more patient. As I was strapping Augustine into his seat, LH456, a beautiful A380 from Frankfurt, flew directly over us. I wish I had a picture of that and will time future visits to watch that flight arrive.
If we start to make a habit of this, I’ll stop writing about it each week. But once again, I was elated to see the joy in my son’s face. We had a great time together and I cannot emphasize how excited Augustine was to spend another day at the airport. Oh yeah, and I was too…
