Arrived in Los Angeles about 8PM. Landed on the "R" runway and had to stop on the taxiway between runways to allow simultaneous R&L landings. Airplanes barely had time to clear the runway before the next landing. Looked up in the sky  and saw six more side-by-side sets of lights (12 aircraft) lined up descending behind us. Amazing sight. Amazing organization.

Unfortunately for me, I had to leave the secure area and go outside to get to the terminal where my connecting flight was. That meant I had to go through all the security checks again, but at least it wasn't raining and I got to see the environs.

My apologies for the motion blur. This was shot hand-held at 5/8 of a second. I should have at least braced myself against a parking sign or something!
