The long telephoto focal length juxtaposes the earthmover too close to the belly of the widebody jet that is taking off.
Reminds one of the unfortunate story of 9V-SPK on 31 October 2000.
Misled by poor airport lighting in a typhoon, the Boeing 747-412 took off from a runway under repair at TPE/RCTP.
The heavy had just gone airborne, when it contacted the boom of an earthmover, ripping open its belly. The aircraft was destroyed and 83 of 179 traveling to LAX, lost their lives.
