What a short runway for a A380

Why does that runway look so short even though it is 10000 feet?!?!

Look at the bottom edge and the fence on the other side of the aiport, they're full of people. spotter nation?

No spotter nation, it's just that people went out spotting on that day since the media had been reporting for days about the LH A380 doing some pilot training in STR among other airports in Germany. People just wanted to see the new LH flagship, the great majority of them aren't even that much into aviation.. haha.. still, this monster is kinda impressive, nice capture!

It looks short but actually it is long, just an optical illusion.

I was there! And I saw here 3 landings in STR yesterday. That is one heck of a lens there. Makes the huge runway look like its 200m long. I'm glad we have an a380 STR pic on the dbase now, mine keep getting rejected :-)

Wonderful pic, however, I'd love a pic from the other end. I'm sure there has to be a good one from there.

This is a very spectacular photo. It is almost unbelievable that the pilots hit the runway.

Amazing, the illusion is that the aircraft is almost above the runway when I'm sure, on that angle, it's still ten seconds away.
