What are the odds these two photographers would go for the same shot from two clearly different locations?

That IS pretty awesome! Maybe both of the photographers coordinated to make simultaneous shots of the same action.

Another amazing thing about the zoom in the first picture is you can also see traffic inbound into OAK, just below the nose gear of the US aircraft. Looks like a DL 767 (?)

WOW! That is amazing!

WestWing: I think the a/c in the far distance on 77970 is a DL 757, if it is OAK approach, it isn't a 767.

You are right, my mistake, cannot be DL and 767 if going into OAK.

Just to make it easier for others to look at the pics:

Looks like another one of those "how many airplanes can I get in the frame" shot. Just spectacular!
Looks as though 77970 was taken a half-second before 777174 was.
Two more to add to my screensaver.

Im guessing the second shot by Ben was taken from the downwind? If so they are really close to the runway though? Is there a mountain or something there? He has to be using 400mm plus on the zoom no?

Mods, thanks for moving this post, as I was not sure which forum to put it under. Is this a once in a blue moon thing for A.net? Or has this happened before?

(This is my second time posting a response - other must have gotten lost in the bit bucket!)

I don't think this is the same scene shot from two different angles for the following reasons:

1. The only way you could get the left layout anyway consistent with the right's is from a vantage point off to the left of the screen and have the 747 on the ground turned towards you not quite broadside. But this would cause the landing aircraft to be very noticibly turned towards you and very foreshortened. This is not what we see; the landing aircraft are still very broadside to the viewer.

2. I don't think the foreground water in the left matches the view in the right image.

3. Judging by the shadows and positions, I think the landing aircraft in the left image are higher over the ground than those in the left image. For example, it seems to me the distant aircraft is within 0.5 fusealge lengths of the ground in the right image, but just less than a full fuselage length in the left image.

4 Finally, the left image has the 747 centered on a line joining the nose of the near landing craft and the tail of the distant one. If you look at the right image, the 747 is not on this line at all.

My 2 cents worth...

I guess it was taken from a single engine aircraft, look at the comment of this photo Ben made on the same day!

Actually, maybe it is really because of the current duplicate post in the "Civil Aviation" forum (where this post also originally was). Many more people look there than here.

As for the OAK aircraft that is under the nose of the US plane, is Delta 757 the definitive identification ? Anyone else have an alternate opinion ?
