Flights about to crash ?! Nah ...

Once again, not sure how true this photo is, nonetheless ... :)

A Lufthansa 747-400 and a United 757-200 are on a simultaneous landing approach on the parallel runways 28L and 28R at SFO.

Real runway separation is 225 meters.

Due to the telephoto distortion, the Jumbo 747 being 3 times larger than the 757 and being behind it, gives us this fantastic optical illusion that they are flying inches from each other !!!
