‘Wake Turbulence’: An Entire Day of LAX Takeoffs in One Epic Photo

Every departure from LAX’s South Complex and a few arrivals at the north complex have been captured and pieced together to create this awesome photo.

Mike Kelley, the L.A.-based photographer, recently spent eight hours camped out with his camera in a park near the airport, taking photos of  every plane that took off over the course of a day. Later, he stitched his footage together into this amazing composite image.

‘Wake Turbulence’ is Mr. Kelley’s way of showing his fascination with the airport. “My intent was to capture only planes that flew out of LAX – highlighting and emphasizing what an incredible airport that this city has,” the photographer wrote on his blog. “It’s really fascinating to look at all the planes heading in different directions, ferrying people all over the world, all originating from Los Angeles.”
