This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/dlfile21799/Plane-Landing-at-Keahole.htm>Plane Landing at Keahole</a></b><br><br>A plane landing at Keahole airport, Hawaii. I'm pretty sure this plane is landing because it has already developed the blue &quot;ghost&quot; 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.<br><br><img src=http://www.googleearthhacks.com/images/new/080505/510752ADMIN.jpg>

It's landing, because the shadow of the plane is not in line with fuselage, so the nose wheel must be up.

By the way its a MD DC-10 or MD-11.

I just have to ask that question: What must the nose wheel be if a plane is taking off? :D Please don't scare me to death :rofl:

Capy, you must know that it never could be, from this distance to the runway end, that the plane is starting.

I know, but your explanation 'forced' me to ask that question ;)
