Always an early rotation for this flight, climbing away from runway 24L bound for ZHR.
Freshly repainted and back in the classic BA colour scheme.
Affectionately known as “Last minute Larry” because of the late rotations away from 24L, seen here whipping the frost up along the side of the runway.
Blast off from rwy 24L.
A nice flash of the beacon as flight AA55 for Chicago rotates away from runway 24L.
Departing runway 24 for warmer climate.
Passed in front of the sunrise just perfectly! This result after standing in the cold wind all morning makes you feel great!
Ex. EC-EUZ Del. 12/13/05. Seen departing LGB bound for PHX. They did a charter for a baseball player from the Arizona Diamondbacks and his family. (Nikon D70)
