Plane- it’s difficult to get good recordings of planes taking off these days. There’s always major streets or highways close by which results in a bunch of unwanted traffic noise. It’s difficult to find a good vantage point to set up because there’s hardly any public parking with unobstructed sight lines (or in my case hearing lines) to the planes. Plus, with all the extra security measures in place these days, how suspicious would I look setting up a laptop and
some cables and some other electronic equipment  in the general area of the runway?
But I managed to get this recording. It’s not spectacular, but it’s OK. There’s some worker truck at the end of it which gets in the way, but doesn’t ruin it.

    Recording is Okey.

    Tip for you.
    When you are in LA visit Vista Del Mar Park‎, Los Angeles. I have been there (forgot the recorder!!). It is just below the runway and 700 feet from the ocean and relatively quiet. So if you are there take your recorder with you ...
    A great spot to record large planes take-off..
