This was supposed to have published a couple of months ago, and clearly it got stuck in the Drafts folder. So, from the better late than never department, a somewhat belated happy 2023!
I was going to start 2023 with another round of construction photos. But for the sake of orientation, I'm including shots of each of the terminals as seen from the control tower, in numerical order. The terminals at LAX are numbered in the order that they are encountered by vehicles entering the airport. Because the control tower is basically in the center of the terminal complex, and as all traffic enters the terminal complex from the east, this results in a series of photos taken in a counter-clockwise direction. These were all taken during the first week of 2023:
|Looking northeast from the control tower: Terminal One. The parking lot just beyond is the current location of taxi and ride share pick up, and the future site of Terminal Zero|
|Due north of the tower: Terminal 2|
|To the northwest: Terminal 3 and the north end of the TBIT, along with the P2B and P3 parking garages|
|Southwest: Terminal 4 and the south end of the TBIT|
|Terminals 5 and 4|
|Looking east from the control tower. In the foreground is the Theme building, currently the location of the LAX USO. Beyond are the P1 and P7 parking garages.|
