This is probably the most famous spot to watch planes land on runway 24 at LAX. The planes literally hover over the famous LAX In-N-Out and are so close you can make out the pilots and see some passengers. This is really a great spot.
This vantage point lies on a park alongside the other end of LAX on runway 25. This spot is so cool because you can see literally the whole runway 25. Planes land and take off right in front of you. Another cool thing is that when cargo planes land imperial hill is right in front of the cargo plane unloading docs and you get really, really close to the planes as they fix themselves to unload their cargo.
It's really hard not to find a really cool spot to watch planes at LAX. There are several other secret spots at LAX such as the proud bird restaurant and Flight Path aviation museum to name a few but these 2 spots are where you'll find some really cool action at LAX. LAX...for me it's the best planespotting airport in the world.
