        It will be an airport worker as far as I am aware.

            The white car appears to have blue/red flashing lights fixed to the roof so it's probably a police or security vehicle.

                  It wouldnt take much of a lens at that distance to get photos of the passengers faces that are looking out the windows.

                              He some sort of professional photographer.

                              He's actualy PAID to fly around the world to various locations. From his onboard photos, It clear the lucky ****** flies mainly business and first class.

                                  DFW used to offer tours back in the late 1980s which included a visit to the control tower, then on a bus to the runway holding point for photography usually timed to coincide with a departure wave, then a buffet meal.

                                  I would imagine these stopped a long time ago.
                                  I don't want to die, because I don't want to end up like Anita Dobson - Frank Sidebottom, actually.
                                  Thank you

                                      Maybe he doesn't mean a plane spotter. It could be someone who drives down the runway in his car checking for debris. At Heathrow they are called Checkers I think. Perhaps at LAX they are called Spotters.
