Yeah - kinda what I said... but there is another reason... The planes
_usually_ take off to the west, because of the prevailing winds ...
Mike - where is the article that these photos were in?

Google maps shows the hotel within a quarter mile or so of the hotel, so the
photo is obviously possible. Take off runways and direction vary from day to
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.
