3 HRs Watching Airplanes, Aircraft Identification
**** SEE PINNED COMMENTS FOR AIRCRAFT IDENTIFICATION ****
3 hours of watching airplanes landing and taking off at one of the world's busiest airports, Los Angeles International Airport KLAX/LAX. Perfect for relaxation, background noise, an afternoon viewing or however you want to enjoy.
I spend a lot of time and effort getting footage for these videos, documenting this world of flight for future generations of aviation geeks and citizens of this world alike. Why is it important to me?
Aviation itself in its many forms, is a very valuable gift. Travel by flight allows this world to become closer, to learn of each other, to become more profitable not just monetarily but also in knowledge and insight and to use precious time more efficiently as well. Yes, that realization may not be quite so present when standing in a lengthy line at the airport prior to the actual travel experience, but then shame on us as humankind for being so nearsighted and not allocating space, people and resources to give this gift the priority and prominence that would make it truly even more effective. The abilities that aviation allows should be treated as an investment for every community.
Aviation is multi-faceted and various types of aircraft allow for greater flexibility in a variety of situations but airliners tend to grab my attention the most. Certainly, there are other methods to get from place to place but consider how the hundreds and thousands of miles that in history past that were once a great divider and an obstacle to human achievement and connection are now so non-existent that people hardly give it a second thought... this is one of aviation's great gifts to mankind: the ability to cover great distances around the world with incredible speed. With airliners, people go global. How long would it take to travel the same distance through some other slower method?
And so it is a lifeblood of this world so ingrained in the way the world operates that to remove it would effectively cripple the world as we know it and as it has now been built because of it. Flight allows us to explore, to follow dreams, to visit and learn of distant lands, to gain more accurate viewpoints, to vacation far away, to see distant clients, friends, family and relatives, the list goes on and on. It is used by the rich, famous and the unwashed masses alike. It is natural that people either realize the value of it and treat it as special or couldn't care less and take it for granted. In truth, a reality this momentous deserves to be celebrated and so I take the time to document and celebrate it in as many forms as I am able and in as many opportunities as present themselves.
Personally, I find in aviation a best friend and something that has been with me most all of my life. It provides a rhythm of life for me that I have found few other things can provide. So many adventures, advantages and opportunities have come to me because of my interest in flight. Through it I have met many wonderful people which I may not have otherwise. Aviation inspires me to eliminate barriers and set goals in my own life, to dream and be the best I can be. There is always more and more to learn of it and through seeking to understand more of it I have learned how to study and to better myself and to attain
knowledge in everything from science to personal discipline. In short, it has become a viewpoint that connects me to the world around me. I echo the words of great aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry who said, “I fly because it releases my mind from the tyranny of petty things. ”
