Below is my photo of N45956 at the gate in Houston just before entering the jet bridge. Both gates at Houston and Los Angeles are "international" gates and have a customs sterile area to keep deplaning passengers out of the boarding area. This window-lined
hallway effectively keeps one from being able to get decent photos from the boarding area through the windows of a plane at the gate.
After getting my rental car I headed straight for "the hill" overlooking LAX. N45956 had already been towed to the east maintenance area so it wouldn't be immediately
departing. I asked a few of the photographers already assembled on the hill if any of them had photographed N45956 after landing. One of them, a Richard Wilson, had in
fact done so and he agreed to email me a photo after he got home. His photo is shown below.
