Erm, you may want to repost that pic o_b
It's an RC model.
Most likely, as there are no runway markings.
Scale looks odd: look at the a/c, and the lines on the tarmac front left: if not an R/C model, I'd look long and hard for photoshop evidence.... (edit - I favour model - those wheels look slightly odd/out of scale...)
The Distance between the Wingtip and the Ground is about the Width of a frog`s Pubic hair ...... Photoshopped - and not very well
A couple of giveaways (IMHO) on this one...
As point out already the black mark on the left of the runway is a filled expansion joint... probably a .5 inch width.
Secondly the plane is casting a shadow on the ground as though it's illuminated from back left (and low). The sunlight on the fuselage tells of a light source to the right.
It's a model. Covered on Pprune a while ago with same picture plus others.
But there was an RAF one which got even closer (like scraping) in Kabul a few years back.
Once I flew a harrier upside down so low I put scratchmarks on the cockpit bubble. Yeah. Unfortunately no-one had a camera and they said I shouldn't do it again.
If that isn't a model, they must be fecking ma-husive trees in the background.
