Aerial View Harbor Freeway @ Manchester On Approach to LAX 1971

33° 57' 27.01" N  118° 16' 44.33" W
Aerial View Harbor Freeway @ Manchester 1971
Flying into Los Angeles in 1971 was a smoggy experience which accounts for the bad scan.  Flying into LA can be an awesome experience especially for the first time.  As the aircraft clears the last bare hills to the east the city spreads out like a wall to wall carpet of regimented lines and cross hatches.  Leaving at night can be even more impressive but I don't have an image of that but I'll be back out there soon.
