Correction: it's the crashing waaayyy oversized saucer. Looks more like the ships from Independence Day than a Constitution-class saucer. Once again, the fx department weren't that careful in setting the scale.
I seriously doubt the FX department would make a mistake like that. If anything, Abrams (a big fan of camera trickery) would have instructed them to oversize it to make the scene look better.

A) What would you say is the diameter of the saucer visible in the picture in question?

B) What would you say is the diameter of a "Constitution-class" saucer?

C) What does "Constitution-class" mean in the context of your statement above?
Approximately 417 feet I believe.
Not in this timeline. The TOS Enterprise is 947 feet long, this new version is at least 2380 feet, maybe bigger.
