This issue has recently been discussed in this thread and I have been in recent correspondence with Glenn about the issue. I am hoping that Glenn will add to that thread, but others from the crew may see fit to make an addition here.
It does look as though there is some confusion with this rule that needs clarification. But, as someone who has been on the wrong end of the rule in the past and had discussions about it here, I feel quite clear:
If you have a previous photograph already on the database of a particular registration - as you do with this example - and you then submit a further photo that has a similar motive - e.g. angle/stage of flight etc - then you are likely to get a rejection for NOA_Double. It DOES NOT make any difference that the photos were taken on a different days.
Thus - though it is a subjective judgement call - some would argue that this new photo has the plane at the same angle, from the same side, and so it is a candidate for this rejection. Others I guess might argue that the plane is not physically in the same place. To unpick that one would require the input of one of the screening team. My hunch - for what it is worth - is that it will get a double rejection.

Although the angle is similar in both photos, it differs by a few degrees + they are differently cropped. In my opinion, the smoke as well as the different location/background should make the photos distinct enough so as not to get categorized as doubles.

Jeff also from the rules:
"In certain cases you can also get this rejection if there are photos in the database that are nearly identical to the one(s) rejected here, but taken on another date by you. Examples of this are photos of stored or preserved aircraft that have not moved since you took the other photos."
