On 17 December, a Lufthansa Boeing 747-8 (D-ABYT) was taking off runway 9 at Miami Airport, United States destination Frankfurt, Germany. Meanwhile, an Iberia Airbus A330 (EC-LXK) from Madrid, Spain was approaching the same runway for landing. 

Only a few seconds after the Boeing 747 took off, the Airbus A330 landed. A - much dramatized - video of the scene appeared on social media. Too close for comfort or not ?

At big airports land after is a common clearance, meaning an aircraft can land even with the previous traffic still on the runway, providing sufficient stopping distance is available.
A balked landing, in this case, would have created a problem as the landing Iberia would have caught up the departing Lufthansa, so landing was definitely the safest option.
A real drama queen the spotter, luckily he’s not an Iberia pilot!

I should think that wake turbulence is the main concern, especially from a 747?
But I also like to think that the pilots know what they are doing.

Accidentally, I saw something similar happen at Antwerp airport yesterday: a PA28 started its take-off roll while a DA-42 was on short final. I estimate both planes were, at one moment, less than 50 feet high, one going up, the other going down, and both well within the aerodrome perimeter. Perhaps they were training for a similar situation? :)

Which wake turbulence? IB landed at a point where LH was rolling at lets say 50kts.

The only possible case of wake turbulence would be the Iberia aircraft going around on runway heading and not climbing above the wake of the 747.
There’s a rather small chance of this happening, since a twin-engine aircraft is always going to have a lot more power in reserve than a quad.
That being said, the easy solution is for the ATCO to monitor the situation, and if it happens, provide an early turn to avoid the wake. I’m sure this was part of their (backup)plan.
Safe, orderly and expeditious, just the way a runway should be used.
This pthread, though not an official source, gives a layman’s interpretation of the rules used under FAA jurisdiction: https://aviation.stackexchange.com/ques ... ed-to-land

At about 2:51 a.m., the officers with the New College Police Department saw 40-year-old Juan M. driving northbound on U.S. Highway 41 in a white pickup... The officers attempted a traffic stop but were unable to catch up with the vehicle... The 40-year-old man then crashed his pickup at high speed into the main terminal building at Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport... He smashed his 2015 GMC Sierra truck through the baggage carousel area and then into the front of the National Car Rental counter... Jèuan M., driving with a canceled driver’s license, sustained serious injuries in the crash and is being treated at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. It is not known if he was wearing a seat belt...Authorities said he may have been impaired or suffered from a medical incident at the time of the crash. However, police said Monsivis has a history of arrests for drugs, DUI and driving with a suspended license.

Sorry Master I thought you were off today so I took the liberty to bring this one up, on your behalf of course.

In an attempt to make amends for my intrusion in your mastery and to support your relentless efforts in the matter, unfortunately referred to by many as "nit-picking", allow me submit an example that demonstrates to all the importance of correct spelling.
By capitalizing a single letter in the following sentence, the whole meaning is somewhat affected :

I’m helping my uncle Jack off the horse.

;)

Respectfully Yours,

H.A.

Eindhoven Airport: no more landings after 23h00 will be allowed as from 25/10/2020. Till now, up to 4 landings after 23h00 are allowed. And as from 2022, the slots allowance system will change from "number of flight movements" to "total of noise produced".

European Commission has opened an in-depth investigation to assess whether the plan by the Spanish region of Valencia to grant €10 million of public support to Air Nostrum for the renewal of its fleet is in line with EU State aid rules.

Air Nostrum president Carlos Bertomeu said the agreement with the Valencia government to support the airline’s fleet renewal was lawful and that the European Investment Bank supported the project.
