Google maps shows the hotel within a quarter mile or so of the hotel, so the

day and even hour to hour depending on wind direction and velocity.

The hotel may have been close to the airport, but from the news coverage we 
learn that the shooter was able to fire rounds that struck fuel storage tanks 
on the airport. This means the fuel storage would be visible from the side of 
the hotel with the broken windows.  Air Force One appears to be on the other 
side of the hotel.  As the hotel is on the Las Vegas strip, and not in the 
middle of the airport, this strongly suggests that to get such a  photograph 
isn't actually possible.

What if the photo was taken from between the airport and the hotel, and the plane took off from runway 19, flying past the hotel and over the strip?
