At least someone is having fun.;-)
6000' feet? Northwest of LAX? Gawd that's crowded airspace!! There used to be a north-south hole above LAX at roughly that altitude through which all the VFR traffic would pass on its way across western LA (such as an approach into Van Nuys.)
in the meta-tag there is 3000feet :/

good journalism is not for NYTimes
@Frank Dapor #podmin - I saw reports in the Guardian article from two pilots, one at 6000 the other at about half that.
