Thanks for posting these ... Impressive looking planes there, nicely done.
Forum limit is max 1024px on longest side and max file size 250kb.
Ah, I suspect it was the 1024px longest side I was falling afoul of mostly, knowing that I've managed to get LR to spit out a few more, including the landscapes this time, so for those who don't like Flickr I've attached a few more.

You captured some fine aircraft. Thanks for sharing. The trip turned out quite different than originally envisioned. I hope you had a good time.
Glad you like them, I'd love to go back and focus on some of the aircraft a bit more, but I'd have to do it in cooler weather, I was struggling with the heat, particularly at the March Field Museum, from memory I think it was around 105-110F (~40-45C.) The trip did turn out quite different, although mostly due to adding more things in as I found some places took a lot less time than I had anticipated. I think the only thing I didn't get to was some of the star photography I had intended, mostly as by the time it got dark I had run out of steam.

Some great wide angle shots on there, love that Blackbird image.

I do like the Blackbird, I hadn't expected to see quite as many as I did, I knew about the two at the Blackbird airpark (3rd shot above) but the ones at March Field and the California Science Centre were a nice surpise. I also spent a few minutes chatting with a former Blackbird test pilot at the Blackbird Air Park which was fascinating.

Really like the second one (good idea to number so no confusion) just think the foreground rocks need darken a touch. also a slight anticlock twist as i think its leaning to the right a bit.

Did you find that 200miles turned out to not only be easy but enjoyable? I've done two sets of three week road trips around there (missed this thread before you went) and had several 400 mile days that were nothing really. The scenery on them alone is worth the drive.
I also would have recommended avoiding LA. My first driving on the first trip was out of the airport, straight into the freeway and into San Francisco. No problem(apart from satnav taking me thru a bus Lane avoiding the toll on the bay Bridge, oops). But whilst I drove ok on the 8 laners in LA and into the bit at the end of route 66 that the name escapes me right now, driving there is not enjoyable.
Edit :Santa Monica pier

We did over 3000 miles in 5 weeks California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah and tried to keep daily mileage down to 200 miles so we could stop and look at places we never knew about before we went, found some great places that way.
