This scene unfolded one morning at KSNA right before 7am. As I've said in other posts, the airport opens right at 7am and airlines like flights to get started ASAP. On any given morning there can be 15 airliners all lined up and ready to go. This shot is unusual however because most of the planes line up on the other side of the airport which would be to the left of this shot. They usually only bring one plane over to this side (usually the AWE A-321) but the day that I took this photo they had 4. You won't see the 4th until you look closely right to the left of the "classic paint" Southwest and you'll see the engine and wing of a Skywest CRJ-700 that's just crossed to this side of the airport.
