It's a fake. It combines a normal landing with an experiment, I believe, that was used for tests related (maybe) to TWA 800.

Fake. Search threads for AC 747 and you'll find the previous discussion.

This is a 747 giving birth to a 717.

You should see it with twins.

Most of the mating is done in the hangar. However, the 747s sometimes do it with space shuttles. You see, the males (like the shuttle) have much more power but the females have the endurance (21 hours is common).

But that female is no plane jane. Most 747s, I believe, do it in the hangar. And sometimes they give birth during landing- to the dismay of the parasites residing inside her.

In this case it was a marriage of Donald Douglas and Big Birtha Boeing.

Thats a fake because I have a picture of a former Air France 747 getting blown up in tests for making LD containers bomb-proof. The tests were carried out in Bournemouth, UK. That picture is a FAKE.

Hahaha, nice explanation.

But serious, of cause this is a fake, a very good one. The exploding tail section was taken from a picture of an old ex-Air France 747-128 (F-BPVE), that was blown up at Bruntingthorpe, England in 1997. The test was done to see how well different kinds of cargo containers can resist a bomb-explosion and stop it from ripping the fuselage. The container on the left rear side you can see exploding was of the standard unarmoured type, so you can see the amount of damage that brought down the Pan Am-Jumbo over Lockerbie in 1988.
Btw, the Air Canada 747 with the fleet number 307 actually is one of the 747-200 Combi-trio retired in 1999 thats currently for sale.

Everything clear now?

Yes, it is a fake picture and it has been posted on this forum three times in the past two weeks. You guys have to realize that AC would love to sue whoever made this fake.

AC has better things to do. Like worry about comeptition from Roots and other carriers that sprouted up after their take-over of Canadian.

I agree with it being a good fake. But the creator forgot to edit out the grey stripes running down beneath the windows of the exploding section. Those dirt stripes are typical for planes which have been stored for a while.
