Too close for comfort???

It's actually a great optical illusion. The Lufthansa 747-400 and United Airlines 757-200 were on simultaneous approaches to runways 28L and 28R at San Francisco airport.
These two aircraft are at a safe distance for the approaches they
are each flying; parallel and 225 meters (738 feet) apart.

Because the 747 is three times larger than the 757 and coming in slightly behind, the camera angle gives us this incredible optical illusion.
