Info from Licensor: "I was filming arrivals and departures on Sydney airport's main runway (RWY 16R) on 2nd January 2017. In this particular video the separation distance between a Jetstar Australia Airbus A320 landing and a Cathay Pacific Airbus A330 taking off was quite close, though I understand still within allowable limits. The video shows the landing plane touching down not long after the departing one lifts off."

    I've always heard that, any landing or take off, not involving contact with another aircraft is a good one. My only complaint, and, it may be slightly invalid here, is that wing vortices have been known to cause problems.
