I was on google earth tonight looking around LGA airport and found two planes on runway 31, one looks to be position and hold and the other half way down and one in the air just about to land. The only problem, I can not copy the picture to show everyone or maybe its just me. So if any one can go on google earth and look at this picture and have better luck then me sharing this image with everyone. I just don’t understand how these planes be so close like that.
They're not all there at the same time. As I understand it, Google Earth is put together with multiple satellite photos, and assuming a world where nothing on the ground moved, you wouldn't be able to tell where the individual satellite photos overlapped. With airplanes moving, you're seeing photos taken at different times, so the aircraft will be in different positions.
The pictures will have been taken at different times and simply meshed together... happens quite a lot. Apparently (although I have not bothered looking for myself) there are several different ships/liners which are photographed in more than one port too.
...love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again...

I dont know what is going on with google earth, instead of going forward they are putting up a lot of old photos, Meigs in chicago at one time looked like a bunck of x,s carved in the runway, not it looks like a full fledged running airport. It seems like in some areas they are like 4 or 5 years old now, You would think at least a city the size of chicago they could get it right,

Sounds like the average day at LGA actually. They run a real tight ship at LGA. Launch, hold and generally right as the departure is crossing over the numbers the arrival on the intersecting should be crossing the numbers to land if they are doing it right at LGA. It is pretty common and they do a fantastic job of it might I add. No other city that I get to move through has a better group of controllers than the guys at LGA. PHL for sure rates at the bottom just like everything else about the city. (Sorry Ed) DCA does a pretty tight job as well running the ship. Keep the runway occupied as much as possible. If there is not a bird on the asphault someplace at LGA something is not going right.
There is plenty of room for Gods animals, right next to the mashed potatoes!
