If you notice the following

Plane 3: has already gone past the 'turn and hold' point coming off of the taxi-way, this plane has begun its roll.

Plane 1: is off the runway having just taken off (notice the shadow)

Plane 2: in the middle of the runway.....

I can not think of a situation when there is a plane (number 2) in the middle of the runway with one well past the turn&hold position and one that,
has JUST lifted off the runway....my theory......we caught the same plane during it's takeoff

All the same plane I imagine, I think possibly the one taking off and the one at start of runway are different but to me its too dangerous for 3

we do an aerial reshoot every two years here at our airport. if this information was provided by an airport, you could have mutiple images of the same aircraft during landing, taxing, and then parking at the gate. this stuff has definitely shown up on our photos.

i may post them later this month. as they are more current and precise.
