I found the following photo this morning. Can somebody please tell me whether it is a legit one ? It appears to be an A.net photo edited to remove copyright details. I tried searching for this on Accidents section and then on Google, but could not find any clue .

This photo has come up many, many times in the past -- it's a fake.

Look at the MLG -- you can see clearly where it was photoshopped.



I'm tired of the A vs. B sniping. Neither make planes that shed wings randomly!

I could be wrong ( wouldn't be the first time ) but I seriously doubt its authenticity , if AF had suffered an incident like this surely the media would be all over it . Also , not sure but to me it looks more like an A319 than an A320 ... or is it just foreshortening due to the angle ?

I see, thanks ha763 . Obviously the smoky touchdown helped for the editing too.

This picture was discussed in 2007 already:

AF A320 Breaks Wingtip Photo? (by Remcor Jun 6 2007 in Civil Aviation)

Although this doesn't make it technically a double thread, there's no point in further discussing a fake picture. Thread locked.

Any additional posts that are made to this thread after this post will be removed for housekeeping purposes, as this may happen due to a short system lag.
