LAX sees many heavies and wide bodies throughout the day- also there are many colorful paint schemes that come from time to time. Sydney also looks like to have a good pleasing sea backdrop but in my opinion LAX has better options. If you plan to do an air-to-air photography in LAX, visit the website

I did an Air-to-Air shooting over SYD last december and it was awesome! However it's more expensive than LAX as far as I know (around 900 AUS$ for 1h). Furthermore you have to find a busy hour and depending on the runway usage you may only hover over a certain part of the airport (--> backlight). Choose one of the SYD based heli charters, they are experienced.
