The plane's direction is not the same as the runway's
Isn't that weird?

It's because he turns the nose into the wind. It's called crosswind and he is "crabbing". This allows him to have a ground track along or at least parallel with the runway centerline.

It's not weird - cross-wind is very powerful in many cases! An amazing capture - thank you very much!

The airplane can get blown sideways in the wind. There is a song by an Irish band called "Brewin up a Storm", it came into my head when I saw this briliant pic.

It happens due to crossing winds, totally normal, nothing to worry about :)

The planes heading differs from the runways heading, however, the plane is most likely tracking down the extended center line.

I always liked the logo on the bottom of the aircraft. Seems to be done specially for A.net spotters, saying "Hey guys, don't forget the company I fly for"
