China Southern Airbus A380-800, B-6138

Sitting on the lawn across from In-N-Out by the LAX airport in Los Angeles, we were lucky to see one of the world's largest passenger airliners arrive from Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, China. It was HUGE and LOUD. An awesome experience! The plane is so large, it has 22 wheels for landing, and depending on the configuration, can seat up to 853 people. Wow. Amazingly, this exact same landing was captured on video by someone else who was watching (http://youtu.be/Z-E6BoBjRGM). In fact, I'm the guy shooting the landing of this plane, starting at 0:19 in the video. You can see this same airplane in photos from around the world here: http://www.planespotters.net/Production_List/Airbus/A380/054,B-6138-China-Southern-Airlines.php
