I am sure all of these are fakes given what seems to be some Photoshop trickery at work. Comments welcome.







Interestingly one of them appears to have the remains of an ANet watermark that has been deliberately fudged out.

1/ The fact that the photographer's name has partially been erased flags this one as a fake, not to mention we'd have read about it the incident.

2/ Widely discussed here on a.net as a hoax, and identifiable as such due to the "fire" not showing up in the reflection of the same engine on the fuselage.

3/ I thought that one was real, based upon what I recall was the photo's listing here on A.net, but after looking at this one, it almost looks like the one in the original post could have been taken a second or two after this one....

I don't use Photoshop, and am thus no expert on it, so I'll defer to those that are...

I am unsure about the third one. The second seems to be 'confirmed' as a fake. The only things that lead me to believe the first is a fake is that there appears to be no evidence of gear compression on the starboard side and the fact that the 'smoke' etc looks to layered over the top.

I reckon the image you posted was what this 'fake' was based on. The position of the vertical tail is in the same position in relation to the buildings in the background. Given the speed of the aircraft at the time if it were two different pictures you would see some distance between the two I would have thought. Looks like a simple rotation done in Photpshop to me. For what it is worth I think all of these are fakes and as 'interesting' as they are, is there a place for them on ANet? I'm not sure. Incidently they were sent to me by a colleague who is a non aviation enthusiast. He thought they were real. Thankyou all for your comments.

My sister uses Photoshop professionally and although she has no background in aviation at all she thought the work was very poor.

All faked poorly.
1) If you look at the far right hand tire of the right and main body gear, you can see the very bad cutting job they've done. It's not circular.
2) Apart from the afore mentioned lack of fire reflection in the fuselage, there is absolutely no black smoke from the burning petrol. Just think of the awful pictures of Concorde or the 9/11 impacts.
3) You can clearly see the egding around the tail where it has been cut out.

It is a very bad edit  Yeah sure

How do I know it was this pic?

Look at the grass in front, and the treeline in the background, and the runway markings.


Thanks

The third one is a fake because the aircraft was already in the air. The "runway" in that one is clearly a taxiway/runway in the back. The aircraft just happens to be riding over it -- the actual runway is the thing you see in the bottom.

Yeah all 3 are fake. You don't even need proof just take a close look and it's obvious. Gotta love how the one is an airliners.net photo too. If I were the photographer I'd be royally pissed.

3rd one is an optical illusion... it is not landing on the "top" runway... it is a few feet above the bottom one. FAKE taikl strike skid added to top runway which is actually in the background... just that wheels are in just the right spot.

Fake

I actually saw the same picture of the fake 747 blowing up with AC livery.

If I'm not mistaken, the rear fuselage of the aircraft is taken from a video/picture of a test done on a 747 (at RAF Bruntingthorpe?) to see what happens when a bomb explodes in the rear cargo bay of an aircraft (post Lockerbie).

I don't think this one (the REAL one) actually is an optical illusion. It seems to me that you can see the jet-blast coming out of the engine and then being deflected parallel to the ground on which the aircraft appears to be. This tells me it is actually in contact. Plus, the near runway is a LOT closer then the far one, and I think if it were actually above the closer one the plane would appear much larger relative to the buildings.

Just my two cents, I could be wrong.

You can also tell that it's still on the ground because of the angle of the main gear. If they had left the ground, they would be angled like this:

1 is a fake because a wing wouldn't break like that.

The wing is far more flexible and if it was to break, it would break further down the span.

If you watch the static loading tests, the wings break further down the span, not near the tips.

Its not these people you have to worry about. Ok, its may be a little strange, but the people who made these are just having a little fun playing around in photoshop. They're not hurting anyone, and I for one think the results are fairly impressive (again in a strange kind of way!)

On the other hand, there are some very strange morbid, even twisted people that do something rather different - faking ACTUAL accident photos. Helios 737 photos come to mind as well as a number of 9/11 "photos". That another level all together.

In the third one, you can see that the 'shopper duped the windows on the building on the left to cover where the plane had been: the four rows of windows at the top of the building are identical with the four rows below that.

Also, if you look at the nose gear, you can see that they didn't bother trimming the eave line of the building behind the gear out, and they left the shadow of the nosewheel on the hangar door.

Plus, that picture has the look of someone using Unsharp Mask to hide the artifactation left behind from the photomanipulation. That's the fuzziness; the real picture is in focus.

So. Very. Fake.

I often see A.net photos floating around in emails & powerpoints, usually with the copyright cut off the bottom. Very irritating. What are they trying to hide?

Oh, & I think all the photos at the top are pretty blatantly altered.
