There's a dingbat here at the office who's insisting the pic of the kid on the roof of the WTC with the incoming AA jetliner below him is real...

Does anyone have the link to the webpage that not only debunks the myth, but shows the Airliners.Net picture they lifted the 757 out of?

That got sent to me. I deleted it. For one the plane was coming from the wrong direction or something. (my friend told me something like that. I thought it was a hoax straight away but couldn't prove it was one. Also, the plane might be wrong. It was an AA757


Anyone can fly, only the best Soar.

I've received that picture several times. One thing I noticed is that it was an AA 757 (as someone mentioned above) The other thing was that when the plane was coming to hit the tower, it was turning. It wasn't perfectly level, as seen in the picture.

also, the guy in the picture should hear the plane coming, it's pretty damn close.

This site explains why this is a hoax very well. It also has some other stuff regarding the 11 September attacks. It's a great site actually.

Also, if one believes the picture to be real, one has to accept the fact that while over 4,000 bodies have yet to be recovered, a SLR camera was miraculously found intact with absolutely no fire damage....

It never ceases to amaze me, the ignorance of certain people. I still hear from those who believe that this photo is real.
