Here is his explanation:

Mike Kelley Quotes: This is (almost!) every departure and a few arrivals at LAX's south complex yesterday. I spent almost the whole day there and another eight or so hours in photoshop putting this all together. I took some artistic liberty with the angles of attack to make a more interesting photograph, but for the most part this is all very similar to how it would appear if you were to go and watch yourself. There are two runways and both were being used for takeoffs, so that explains the size differences and depth differences between the planes. If you look to the right of the tower, I also tried to get some of the heavies arriving. Singapore, Air France, Malaysia, Air New Zealand and Emirates A380s and 772s."
