    Meaning of these sentences

    Hi all
    I wanna know
    1.The plane has just landed. 2.The plane just landed.

    Are these two the same meaning?
    And for the first sentence It has two meaning, right? It means 1.The plane just landed lately 2.The plane has started landing from the past and now it is still landing

    If I'm correct how can I know which one the speaker means?




    Thanks in advance ^ ^

    They are the same, apart from the omission of "has" in #2.

    The first sentence has two meanings, right? If so how can we distinguish that "The plane has landed" means 1.The action already finished or 2.The action continued from the past and now it is still the acting the same



    Please explain as much as you can

    What "two" meanings has #1?

    In both sentences, the action is completed = the plane has landed.
