Camo Plane Landing or Taking Off

Camo Plane Landing or Taking Off

A camouflaged plane landing at the Beijing Capital airport. The plane seems to be taking off because
A. If you look at the runway to the east, ~8 planes are waiting for takeoff. Therefore, that runway must be the takeoff runway, designating the other (this one) as the landing runway.

But, a counterargument:
A. This is a long runway and a small plane, so shouldn't...

New Northwest Runway Frankfurt Airport

New Northwest Runway Frankfurt Airport

The new landing runway will be some 2,800 meters (9.240 ft) long. The centerline separation from the existing North runway will be approx. 1,400 meters (4.620 ft). This will allow for simultaneous landing operations on these two runways, which are not possible on the existing parallel runways because they are not far enough apart.

The aircraft would pass over the harbour, and then the very densely populated areas on Western Kowloon. This leg of the approach was guided by an IGS (Instrument Guidance System, a modified ILS) after 1974. Upon reaching a small hill marked with a checkerboa...

Plane Landing at Keahole

Plane Landing at Keahole

A plane landing at Keahole airport, Hawaii. I'm pretty sure this plane is landing because it has already developed the blue "ghost" effect, which comes when an object is traveling very fast. If the plane were taking off, the blue effect wouldn't be there yet, because the plane couldn't accelerate in such a short distance from the end of the runway.
