I wonder how much fuel that bird will burn just taxiing around an airport before takeoff?At LAX,there can be at times some long lineups of aircraft waiting to go.Oh well,it will be interesting to see one way or another,when it comes to town.It gives new meaning to the term,"Caution,wake turbulence."
