Therefore I estimate that you can see about 308 feet in front of the building
The length of a Boeing 757 is 155 feet
308 + 155 = 463 feet
If the plane flies at 500 mph
it flies 0.139 miles per second
that is 733 feet per second
a camera typically takes at least 24 frames per second
it flies 30.5 feet per frame
463 divided by 30.5 = 15.1
According to my calculation the plane should be visible at least partially in as many as 15 frames
However, except for the very tip, the flying object does not appear in any pictures at all.
Who can explain this?
