I don't get it? Multiple landings with a/c below separation standards? Can someone explain?

Much of this imagery is actually taken from high flying aircraft rather than satellites. As the camera aircraft flies it takes a picture which is then stitched to other pictures to form the blanket coverage.

In this case the camera aircraft was flying from west to east at appx the same relative speed of the aircraft taking off and landing. As camera took each frame of the picture the aircraft below was constantly moving into the new frame. Each of those frames was then stitched together with the same aircraft in each frame.

So you aren't seeing " Multiple landings with a/c below separation standards" you're seeing the same plane over a short period of time.

As the aircraft taking off gains speed you'll notice the separation between each instance becomes greater until it flies out from under the camera plane.

Conversely for the landing plane as it slowed down the distance between the two instances is very short and then the camera plane quickly flew past it as the landing plane either stopped or turned off the runway.
