This is one of those thing you just can't capture on a camera (you know, like the way the Grand Canyon just looks like some little pleasant scene in a photo?! - still it helps to click on the pic and see it larger.) This is the only time I've ever happened to catch shots of it. Sometimes when driving along Lincoln Blvd next to LAX, the timing may be right when a plane will be coming in for a landing at the same time. When its a big one like a 747 or A380, up until the last minute it gives you the illusion that its gonna land on the same road you're driving on. Of course it never does (luckily,) but the sensation never changes.
