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.

Is this Sam Chui Character that well connected and know throughout the world? I am not too familiar with him.

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.

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.

Nope, well not in the official definition of the term (meaning that it is NOT his profession).
