Los Angeles Arrival Window View

Never arrived in Los Angeles by air before, well this is the view you will get when arriving into LAX from AKL. I took these shots onboard NZ6, NZ-NBT, as you can see I was sitting on the right side of the aircraft. The smog wasn't to bad for this time of year in LA so the the view was quite good.
