I tried to find this in the forum but couldn't. Can anyone verify the authenticity of this video? It looks like a fake to me:

100% fake...there are a few that are simular floating around YouTube. Think about ...?? A Kit-Surf sail might be 10-15 feet above the rider... that plane at what....100-200ft..?????

It looked like an A310 or A320 to me - couldn't tell

The wing and the wheels clearly show that it is no A310. It's clearly an A320, although I don't recognize the livery.

I'm just going to spill my guts right now and say something probably a little mean, but....How do people even believe this is real from the first place? Especially some aviation enthusiasts? It looks so fake. I could tell it was fake from the getgo. Just look at the plane!  Smile

Feel free to let me know if that was to harsh. Big grin  flamed

It is a A320 and it is 100% fake. Big grin

Just look at the wheels. The aircraft does not have a double pair on the main gear.  Smile

Not harsh at all, but to some folks here at work - it looked real. I dismissed it as a fake the minute I saw it, but I just wanted something to prove to them that it was indeed a fake (Maybe a commercial or something.

Beside the kite flailing off the wingtip - is there anything else (beside the window/cheatline) that looks blateantly fake?

Thanks

This video is a hundred percent fake.But as a person who has kite-surfed before it could be possible if the aircraft was a little lower.A mate of mine was using his set up one day,all of a sudden this breeze caught the kite as he was surfing and lifted him roughly 50 feet out of the water and slammed him into a sandune 5 seconds later.Funny to see but very sore.After seeing this with my own eyes i could see how it could be possible if an aircraft was lower.any one want to try out this theory?  rotfl   Big grin

I can see how this could be faked. People windsurf at Castle Island in Boston all the time, and that is right along the approach path into BOS, although not quite as close to the airport as they were. I'm sure there would be serious restrictions if the planes at that particular airport were close enough for that to happen.
