This is making its way around the web in an email. the sender says this camera was found in the rubble & taken by the FBI for evidence. What do ya think? Fake?

My guess it is fake. But a chilling picture anyway.

I think it's a fake. Wasn't the observation deck on the south tower? This picture shows the plane approaching the north tower.

Why would anyone want to fake a red "X" in a white box?

Fake to the faggot who made this!

The plane itself is also wrong.
I see that the color of the silver is much more pale than usual. I dont think in Mornign sun it would look like that.
But thats my opinion.
Somehow I thought i heard experts on CBC say that it was real?! harhar!

Also notice that the weather is not the same as it was on 9-11-01 and the plane is an American 757 and not a 767. It is a serious fake and not even a good one. Whoever made it is gets my weekly award.

I also notice that bad faked date sign down in the right corner. Looking at the scan quality that should be much more blurred and transparent with a small glow around. Also, it's mostly in another orange color.

In other words - I would have done it better  Big grin But I don't have that bad taste...

Also, there is no way in heck any film survive the fire and fall from the top of the building. I once got to close to some lava in Hawaii and it destroyed an entire roll of film. I learned real fast not to go beyond safety barriers.

Thanks Chris,

I don't like the frequent use of the word fake, but in this case it certainly applies, as well as 'tasteless'.

As Chris pointed, why a heavy coat on such a warm morning ?

In fact, it's almost humorous how we all post our comments claiming it's fake - when it's such an obvious fake  Smile Can't understand who anyone could think it's real...

A lot of people who don't know anything about aviation, photography, and/or just very gullible will believe it. I got several e-mails from people I know who thought it was real.

Is this the AA757?

Fake, if it was that close on full power, I'm sure they wouldnt be just standing there. What about the photographer himself? He must have been looking right at it!

The American 757 crashed into the Pentagon. It was an American 767 that crahsed in the North Tower and a Unted 767 that crashed into the South Tower.

I know its fake....I found it on another board & thought i'd amuse you by posting it here.

Now, I wonder where he got the plane pic from? Hope he didn't steal it from this database!

someone said, why would he just be standing there taking pics with a plane coming at him. Well, people do dumb things in these situations. Look at all the people who jumped from the 90th floor....did they actually think they'd hit the ground LIVING? What were they thinking? Well you got two choices: die in the fire/collapse or jump & die. Hmmmm.....

Actually, if I was in a disaster situation & had a camera present I probably would take as many pics as possible & hope it survives to be developed if I don't survive.

Grim thought, I know. But the last couple weeks I've often wondered what I would do if I found myself in that kind of situation.

Cheers

Not only is the airplane in the photo a long and slender 757-200 verses the actual airplane, a relativley short and stubby 767-200, but the shadows (or rather lack of ) on the airplane indicate the sun was high in the sky. Notice the dark shadow on the side of the man's face. That part of this composite image was taken early in the morning when the sun was relatively low in the sky. There should be major shadowing of the fuselage on the right wing.
