I believe she is landing, not taking off, the angle is too low to be taking off

It is landing! Look at the flaps!

The trail of vapour from the wings seems to be rising up from level. In a landing, wouldn't it be the other way round i.e. in the downward direction?

Fantastic shot!

This a/c is landing...notice how flaps and slats are deployed in landing configuration. Also, there is no spray behind the wheels, indicating the a/c is touching down.

It is looks to be landing due to the flaps and the angle of attack. You can see the water vapour because the flaps are creating lift on the wing, and it is flowing downward because that is the direction the airflow travels after it has passed the wing (again due to the angle of attack in the flare).

7R at taxiway Tango means the plane is landing. (Or rotated in less than 1000 feet, your choice)

This is landing...not taking off...the position of the landing gear + flaps + angle of attack of the nose clearly show that its LANDING...cheers

This is a landing. You're looking from the south via TWY T. Beyond the RWY TWY H9 is coming up from the right sight. Beautiful image!

Definitely landing - the position of the main gear gives it away, IMO.

Even in nasty weather the Boeing 747 outshines the Airbus A-380. 40 plus years of elegance, what a fantastic design.

The clarity is so good in this photo that we can see detail in the vortex coming off the flap.
