    Default Plane Landing at Keahole discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    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.

    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? Please don't scare me to death

    Software is like entropy. It is difficult to grasp, weighs nothing, and obeys the second law of thermodynamics; i.e., it always increases.

    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
