Quoting PolymerPlane (Reply 4): No one would allow him to take an xray image in a hangar, while people are still working on the plane.
I have my doubts as well, and yes he did get 747/777 mixed up! But the video says he uses a skeleton ("Freda") or dead bodies when he wants those sort of images. He seems pretty cautious when it comes to radiation, as any radiographer would be.
He also says he got the aircraft in 'boxes'... whether or not that's true I don't know.

He says "Boeing sent me a 747 in containers, and I sent them back an XRay... I kid you not." I'm calling bullshit on this one. I'm suuuuree Boeing sent him a 777 in boxes, makes perfect sense...Â
And he says that was "500 components". If I was working on a project of this scale, and if Boeing shipped me an airliner in boxes... I think I'd at least know WHAT airplane it was, which he clearly does not.

Quoting EMBQA (Reply 8): Yes it's fake.... I've seen real x-rays of aircraft and they look nothing like that. For one the entire aircraft would be a blur because of all the structure, wires, plumbing...etc.
That was my vote as well. When I worked for Douglas I saw an MD-90 ge x-rayed. They ropped it off and no one was allowed near it. And the images looked nothing like the picture in the link. Nice image piece of art like jetlife2 said.
