I am not questioning the authenticity of this photo above but if both planes are landing why are they're noses not pointing skywards?

Just to make things clear again the JAL plane is not an Airbus A330 its a Boeing 777 300ER. You can tell by the raked wingtips (not traditional winglets). It has a wingspan of 242.33 ft (73.93 m)




I think the image feels like a mistake cause we are not thinking in 3d. Do we know the distance between the two aircraft vertically?

Here ia another story and better pic I think of a thankfully non- fatal near miss.

Close, but no cigar.

This thread is talking about a DHL cargo jet and a JAL commercial flight near Heathrow in the UK. The link you provided is a British West Indies jet and an American Airlines jet near Miami.


But I know I wouldn't want to be on any of these planes..........


That is a 3d rendering, not a photograph.

I think the picture is real, go to www.airliners.net and you'll see allot of pictures were planes are very close together.

Quick math revisited (same formula-different variable);

Changing the big planes wingspan to 250' shifts the ratio from 4:3 (approx)
to 5:3. If the distance between the planes is one half mile as claimed, then
the distance of the observer to the near plane is between 3/4 and 1 mile.

keep in mind that the required separation here is 3 miles or 1000 feet vertically. one mile is 5280 feet, and half a mile is 2640 feet. more than enough seperation.

Nice picture!

I would think that the Jet jockeys are crapping in there pants that close together!
The main thing I see with the picture is, were are the wings going?

There is a small chants in hell that they got that close, but NO pilot
would let that just happen. He would have to had to have seen the other jet.

Nice but, I am not taking into this one.
