3. Terminal 7 Baggage Claim

Libby came back and landed at Terminal 7 and it was a busy time when she arrived (5 minutes).

What can you expect in this recordings:

  • a lot of “walla”
  • suitcases rolling on the floor

4. Terminal 6 Airport Vehicle Traffic from Parking Garage

I parked my car at the Terminal 6 Parking Garage and recorded the street traffic (5 minutes).

What can you expect in this recordings:

  • Buses and cars driving by, stopping and driving away
  • the typical bus “whoosh” from the hydraulic

5,6 and 7. Airplane Landing Sound

Airport Sound Effects Los Angeles

What can you expect in this recordings:

  • I was standing behind the main landing field and recorded the sound of two incoming airplanes.
  • recording 5 is the first airplane
  • recording 6 is the second airplane
  • recording 7 are both planes in one file mixed.
  • around 4:30 minutes all sounds together

LAX has always two incoming flights so I mixed them together. If you like you can lower the volume from the second plane and pan it to the right to get the feeling one plane is above you and the other one is coming from the right site.

8. Open and Closing Doors At Terminal 5 Parking Garage

This sound was a sound request on Reddit who needed this unique sound (1:30).

What can you expect in this recordings:

  • I open and close the left and the right door plus the hedge back of the car a few times.
  • Background airport sound from the street
  • Buses
  • cars and buses honking

That was a fun recording and the next airport album that I am working on right now, is an album with all airport sounds from around the world that I have already recorded like:

  • LAX, USA
  • Atlanta, USA
  • Chicago, USA
  • Stuttgart, Germany

There is no other airport in the world which serves so many people and so many airplanes. This is an extraordinary airport… it could be classed as one of the wonders of the modern world.
