Los Angeles International Airport (IATA: LAX, ICAO: KLAX, FAA LID: LAX) is the primary airport serving Los Angeles, California, the second-most populated metropolitan area of the United States. It is often referred to by its airport code LAX, with the letters usually pronounced individually (IPA: /ɛl.eɪ.ɛks/). LAX is located in southwestern Los Angeles in the neighborhood of Westchester, 16 mi (26 km) from the downtown core.

LAX is the busiest airport in California in terms of flight operations, passenger traffic and air cargo activity, followed by San Francisco International Airport (SFO). LAX is also the only U.S. airport to serve 3 or more international destinations with ridership of 1 million passengers or more per year (Tokyo-Narita, London-Heathrow, Taipei).

History of Scenery in FlightGear

Los Angeles International Airport was first modeled by MaverickAlex, albeit missing terminals 7 and 8. In July 2010, the airport was nearly completely remodeled by Skyop, with replacement terminals, the addition of the missing terminals, parking garages, and roads. The new models are available through TerraSync; the old models can still be found in World Scenery version 1.0.1.
