'J' is for Jumbo Jets Juxtapositioned (abc Wednesday)

I recently had an appointment in El Segundo on the South side of LAX which is 15 miles away from Palos Verdes. I drove around for a bit, taking in the sights and found a perfect "high" spot overlooking the airport on E. Imperial Ave.
This meeting of jumbo-jets from Down Under is for my cyber-friends Sally, Julie, Kris, and Gordon. G'day, all.
Join Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4!

Ha,ha! Good one. It reminds me of those creatures, the "Push-me,Pull-you" in Dr. Doolittle.

Tash, forgot to tell you to check out some REALLY expensive real estate on my blog today.

Funny coincidence (the airlines) and nice juxtaposition (the airliners).

What amazes me most about this photo is how clear the San Gabriel Mountains are! Those are the San Gabriels aren't they? Can you always see them this well? I used to live right below them and there were many days 15-20 years ago that even we couldn't see them. Love the planes too.

PJ said...

What a great catch, Tash! I keep thinking I'll go out to our local airport but never do. I'll have to get out there.

Mara said...

Ooh, I love that word: juxtaposition. I had been thinking about using that one, but couldn't find a nice photo to accompany it. Very well done on yours!

Wow! What a great shot!

That's two great 'J's in one! Excellent!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday today!

I thought of posting Jumbo, but I would only have had one; yours is clever - 2 J's in one.

Thanks for thinking of us Aussies and linking us. (PS there is a problem with the link to Kris and me - you've included a /Kris and /Gordon after the site URL)

I like the fins. They are so colorful and pretty!

I like the way you captured these two together like this. Nice J post.

Petrea said...

For a second I thought you were going to tell me your son was flying this one.

Neva said...

A very nice J and a huge jet!
