The ATC must've given the clearance in a heartbeat.

Fantastic timing... poor judgement from ATC

Quite amazing, crystal clear photography - should one assume that to keep within ATC minima etc, the runway is quite long?

Hum hum... Talk about minimum distance... Very close call! Definitely not something you should see to often! Nice angle!

Love this shot! I could be wrong, but I believe the regulations state that the departing aircraft must be at least one mile down the runway AND AIRBORNE before the arriving aircraft crosses the runway threshold. So if the arrival is just at the threshold all looks good to me!

What if the rotating aircraft had to do aborted takeoff procedure?

Awesome picture and a great example of ATC pushing some tin. Gutsy call on ATC's part.

Good job ATC. In the U.S. all they need is 6000 ft airborne turned to avoid conflict.

Proves that whole "somewhere around the world a 737 lands or takes off every 5 seconds" what a shot! 73's look so good!
