    Wrong Way 2

    This plane is also going the wrong way. You can clearly see the arrows pointing SW, yet the plane is going against them, NE. Newark International Airport

    I think this plane has approached on 4R, not taking off or it is taxing to somewhere .
    You search it, I will find it!

    Default Back-tracking

    The aircraft is not "going the wrong way" it is simply back-tracking the runway before take-off.

    The arrows are chevrons which indicate to landing pilots the start of the landing part of the runway. These displaced thresholds can be seen on many runways where for reasons of terrain under the approach path or noise abatement the landing aircraft must not use the full length of the runway, and so must not touch down before this point.

    I think McMaster is right. It looks like 4R/4L is the active, as opposed to 22. (as indicated by the ERJ pulling onto 4L) That would mean that the aircraft has landed, and is either taking a long landing roll, or is taxing to the end of the runway to make it's designated turn off.
