I've seen 5-engined 747s (on photos), but a 4-engined Tristar?

What do you think, guys? Could this photo be fake or what? At least the pic is blurry. Big grin

Not a fake I think as there is another L-1011 shot with 4 engines in the db.

I have to say a bit of resizing wouldnt go a miss on this one  Big thumbs up

Did you happen to look at the comments? It is not a fake. This is the way a spare engine is transported to another location. (There are several photos of other airliners carrying spares like this.)

It is not the greatest quality, but it is an older photo showing somehting unusual, so the standards are easier as far a quality. It is a fascinating shot.

"Fake" is a four letter "F" word.

Don't throw it around lightly.

I didn't say it IS fake. Just asking other people's opinions...  Insane

Joge,

Just contact the photographer. Ask him/her first. It's a common courtesy and EXTREMELY easy to do. Questioning the authenticity of a photograph in a public forum without the input of the original photographer is akin to gossip.

I'm sorry. It's just plain rude and I really wish there was less of it here.

Ok, ExitRow...

So this is how you react on every questions and opinions and posts in this forum?  Angry

I believe this forum is made for questions about the photos at A.net and aviation photography in general.

Just go and take a look how many posts like "what camera should buy" or "what camera you have" there are at this forum.  Laugh out loud

LOL, just ridicilous...

Joge-

No. Very different. Do a search on the word "fake" in this forum and you'll see I am not in the minority on this issue.

Wondering about about "how" a photogaph is taken is very different than saying:

What do you think, guys? Could this photo be fake or what? At least the pic is blurry. 

You are looking for consensus. And doing so without contacting the shooter FIRST is just plain wrong. What you are doing can only serve to DISCOURAGE good photographers from submitting work to this website.

LOL, just ridicilous...

Your condescension reveals that your motives are less honorable than just honest curiosity...

This is a touchy subject around here. You're lucky your thread starter was not deleted as flamebait.

Then you just contact the admins and tell them to remove this topic. It's EXTRAMELY easy to do. You don't have to debate here and with that ethical gabble.

Joge,

I think you've been around this forum long enought to recognize that whenever the word "fake" is mentioned, things can rapidly get emotional. You can ask things like "how is this possible", and whatnot, but mention the word "fake", and it's like waving a red flag in front of the bull - you can expect to get run over.

Just a friendly reminder.

Charles

Hi Charles,

It is just because Joge is already such a long time around on the forum, that I know that he just wanted to ask a normal question. He certainly did not want to offend someone. He would never do this, therefore he is already too long around on a.net, and has already taken enough pictures in his life to know this.

Best regards,
Frederic

Charles,

The point was to start a discussion of that photo. Now see for instance LGW's or Johan's reply. My point was to talk about the pic quality... Well, I won't start another debate, I think this topic and subject is over now.

It's just somebody take it too seriously...

Instead of asking: "Could this photo be fake or what?"

You could have asked: "Why does it carries 4 engines?"

Your initial post was in fact questioning the autenticy of this photo, not the best attitude as your first worry should be to understand why the 4 engines.

Joge, here are the comments that were on the comments section of the photo.:

"Anyone ever seen a Tristar with Four engines? This is the way Bwee transported their spare engines from overhaul at Rolls Royce, LHR via YYZ, the aircraft would overnight at Toronto, the engine would be attached, then on to Trinidad next day."

Luis,

I KNOW why it carried that fourth engine. That's why I didn't ask it that way! This is photography forum, if I wanted to know why it carries that extra engine, I would have posted that message to other forum. I thought the same thing GKirk did, just why I doubt it.

IMHO, ExitRow is the one acting here inappropriately.

Defending a photographer that has an image pass the screening process from someone who starts a thread questioning its validity in a public forum without ever contacting that photographer first... is inappropriate?

You think the photo is fake. If it were about engine ferrying, it should be in Tech/Ops. You think it's fake and you want to drag this guy over the coals in the court of public opinion.

And I am acting inappropriately?
