Just saw this video:
http://www.ebaumsworld.com/2006/09/jetintobuilding.html
Is that for real? Where and when did it happen? Looks like CIS / eastern europe to me.

Pretty scary. Might be fake though. The people walking around seemed way too casual with the fact that a fighter jet was about to smash into a building.

Reminds me of when some third-world airline put its cargo-747 into an apratment complex in Amsterdam in the 1990s.

Funny, but I think Israel is considered a First-World country. I checked the World Bank listing to confirm.

I dont think he ment Isreal was a third world country. Maybe just either forgot who did it, or mixed up some details..

I looked it up, it was an El Al aircraft indeed. Should have checked my facts before I posted. Sorry about that.

No harm done. My response came off sounding harsher than I intended.

Fake for sure as a MIG29 would not have the mass to go all the way trough
the building............ other than that not bad.

Cheers,

The video being 100% fake was my first thought as well! I just wanted to make sure. What gave it away was the size comparison between the size of the windows / storey height and the actual width and height of the MIG.

Another way to decipher the truth of the film, the videographer seems to be ready for it and takes no reaction to the crash.

How on earth do they do the effect with the building on fire? Amazing semi-realistic graphics.


I love the smell of burnt kerosene!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was pretty realistic and scary! But it is ebaums world and everything is fake there (mostly anyways).

First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Oh no, it's real alright...I should know...I was there.....it happened in 1992 ,they couldn't afford to have the building demolished by foreign "experts" so they called in an eastern-bloc pilot called Anatoly boloksky (he came last in his promotion at his flight academy) and they asked him to do it for them, promising his family an extra ration per week, for life!!!!, the prat forgot to pull the ejection handle + he hit the wrong building, thats' why the camera moves suddenly to the left.

Enjoy

so they called in an eastern-bloc pilot called Anatoly boloksky

Some years ago, there was a "press release" circulated by (purportedly) a manufacturer of liferafts that stated that Southwest Airlines was going to equip some of their aircraft with liferafts.

The liferaft company spokesperson was identified in the press release as "Rowan Anaprain". I think he and Anatoly might be "related"...  Wink

Bollocks indeed!  Wink

FAKE! Looks like the aircraft "disappears" before hitting the building.


I'd like to thank me for flying Me Airways...
