    Speaking of which, the jumbo jets that land at Hong Kong's airport fly within the city, very close to skyscrapers... if a 747 can do it, an Intersun Liner can do it.

    There's one example. Ok, off the top of my head...

    - Minneapolis/St. Paul (no terrestrial noise vibrations, eh? Tell that to people in South Minneapolis)
    - New York
    - London
    - Washington, D.C.

    Huh. Only planes I recall hitting buildings in those cities was intentional.

    Here is proof of how close airliners can fly, with no problems...

    Nice danger sign. Quite apt. :lol:

    You come pretty close to a few buildings in Atlanta too. I don't find the ships that close to the city that weird at all, or really a big enough detail to care about. I'm sure the CGI guys will make sure the spaceships avoid the buildings no problem.

    Well, fine, but I wouldn't live there.

    (I can think of a couple of instances of planes accidentally hitting buildings, actually, but thankfully not big jets.)

    Again, why would spacecraft that we've seen take off vertically have any problem with hitting buildings ?

    ^Takeoffs don't always go as planned. But I surrender the point, airports are sometimes built in locations where they can be a nuisance and danger.
