      If there was a bus or a truck on the road the wheels would have struck it. The red SUV driver barely avoided decapitation. Look at the clearance under the 747s wheels. I've seen aircraft on finals on Chicago's Midway (requires very resolute approach, aircraft carrier-like) many times but nothing like this. Watch the people running in panic.This was pilot error my friend.

        Oh, you've seen aircraft on finial. That's interesting I spent 16 years giving them landing clearance.

        What your seeing is a bit of an optical allusion. Take a look again. That is about a nine foot fence and a very large plane. The plane clears it with room to spare. IF there were safety considerations then the road or the airport would be closed.

        Here are some more pic. This is a very well known airport and just normal routine.

          I think this is one of the airports in Microsofts FSX.
