Hey everyone, I was just looking around Frank Stewards website, and discovered this picture, and I wanted to know if it is really a real picture.

What they did was they cropped and combined pictures from both a landing AC jet and an ex-AF jet that was having testing done (i.e. what happens when a bomb goes off in a pressurized cargo bay).

It is a known fake. A composite of 2 images. Well done though.


what seems to be the officer, problem?

No - it's been kicking around for a long time. It's a composite of Air Canada 747 and photographs of luggage-hold explosion tests on a 747 airframe in the UK.

No, it is not real. It is trying to look like either an explosion of the aft cargo compartment, or a very bad tail strike on landing (the spoilers are deploying). Either way, the main deck is buckling and frames deformed, but the (very thinned skinned) upper section of the fuselarge/emmpenarge and tail is still straight and function (look at the elevators).

Yes, that picture is indeed real.

In fact this is the reason that AC stopped serving curry in Y class - it was playing havoc with their operation while they patched up the damaged aircraft Wink

So long 701, it was nice knowing you.

it was an experimental flight and expected to blow up. i can't remember the details, but i've seen it brought up in the forum before. the a/c was white with no markings and touched up.

Also you can see its fake because in the front section of the fuselage the airplane is what we can call clean, but the blown section is completely dirty.

Here's a question..? What do you think...? Since there is no record of an Air Canada Boeing 747 expoloding on landing, I'd say no.

It's a very nice fake adapted from that photo series. I had to make the following diagram to convince my father (a retired airline pilot) that image was just a fancy composite job:

I like the idea that it was an AF plane more than a British plane... look at how dirty it is.... speaking of dirty... when is NW going to get rid of the DC-9s???

JUST KIDDING!!! That is a well done crop job.

Way to pic on somebody who is only 14-ish. I hope for your sake you don't have kids. Maybe next time instead of being an a$$, you can see who is asking the question!!!

And, by photo alone, you could tell that this was an obvious fake how? I'd really like to know so that I can make better photoshops in the future.

"I know that AC never had a 74 explode on touchdown" isn't an answer.

By photo alone.



We can agree to disagree.

Knowing that AC never had a structural failure of a 747 like that on touchdown is enough of a reason. But since you asked, the first thing I looked at was compression in the struts. Seeing none, combined with the above mentioned fact, was enough for me. By photo alone, db.

And I'm not even an airline pilot...
