The combination moon and plane is plausible. I have some similar pictures. Made 10 years ago using a 300mm lens, unfortunately these pictures are slides…so don’t ask me to proof it…
. Because I used only 300mm the moon is not this big.
After bringing family to Schiphol Airport at 4 in the morning I noticed the moon was very big. I found a spot near the runway where I could catch the moon and landing planes in one frame. Because the landing planes use a predictable rate of descend and the moon moves very slow it was not difficult to find a position were the planes and the moon came “together”.
I don’t know if the pictures are authentic but using a very big lens I think it is possible...
