How did a 747 land on such a short strip?

An exquisite photo! I have heard of this airport from an Aussie friend of my wife, and about the Qantas 747 parked there. Thanks so much for posting this photo...

Saw the landing of the 747 on youtube, quite impressive. Ond day, a Qantas A380 has to land on this runway. Must be more impressive though...:D
