If you zoom out once you can see three airplanes in a row, take offing from Frankfurt am Main airport.

The plane has the airport to it's tail. So unless they land backwards in Germany, this plane is taking off and is not "on approach" as the caption says. LOL.

I'll change "On approach to Frankfurt" to "After departure from Frankfurt".

If you look at the last airplane of the 3 that are pictured taking off from Frankfort you can see that it is angled to the point that if you zoom in you can actually read the name of the airline, "Lufthansa".

This is amazing when you consider that the picture was taken from over a hundred miles in the sky above the airplane.

I believe that these three planes are actually the same plane in sequential pictures. First, the planes should not be that close on takeoff. Second, the planes look the same. And Third, look at the highway for groups of cars that repeat themselves.

Being 747, the jet blasts would create a devistating wake, so adding to what geeenius said, these planes should NEVER bee that close in the air.
