Watch This Documentary Short, Long-Term Parking, About Airport Workers Living at LAX

Here’s an interesting eight-minute video from the New York Times about a group of airport workers, pilots, ground support and flight attendants who live at Los Angeles International. They’ve set up a trailer park at one of parking lots. That certainly cuts down on the commuting times.

One of the reminders when you watch the video is the toll working in the airline industry can take on pilots and flight attendants. They spend unheard of amount of time away from home and their family. Some of the residents are estranged from their families.

At this makeshift community, you’ll hear the residents stories, how they live simply and how they take pride their work. On the opposite side, it does seem a tad bit on the sad side the isolation they must feel. Judge for yourself.
