This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile14868/Too-Close-For-Comfort.htm>Too Close For Comfort</a></b><br><br>These two planes are landing incredibly close to one another, leading me to believe that it is the same plane. Looking around the airport there are many more such examples. Airport: Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport <br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/793180ADMIN.jpg>

If you look at another GEH you'll see 4 a/c on the same approach/runway, or is it one, photographed 4 times?

that image is the same plane 4 times. This airport is just relly messed up. If you check out one of the planes thats lifted off you can see it like 3 times in a row

It just demonstrates that the images are taken in strips with a short delay between them, so the plane has moved a little in this time. If you know the speed of the aircraft you could work out the delay. Here's another example.

Did you not see the irony in my question?!!
