Shot of the day 17

Well, shot of the evening, anyway


  1. It's a Horizon Dash-8 (aka Q400) that departed off Runway 24 Left. Your question got me thinking, and I don't seem to remember ever seeing an ATR on the ground at LAX. It seems inconceivable that there's never been one during my tenure, but my time here only goes back a decade or so. We currently have BE99s, B1900s, and E120s; and in the past I have seen C208s, C212s, J31s, SF34s and SW3s; we've even had an occasional Shorts or Dornier here. American Eagle did operate ATRs out of LAX in the 1990s, but only the old hands remember them here now.
