Is This Real Or Not?

Sun May 28, 2006 10:26 am

I was looking at pictures at and I came across this photo:

Did AY ever ordered this planes or they leased them for a while?

Is it just a fake picture that the photographer uploaded?  Confused

This has been discussed before and it's a fake. Never have AY owned an IL-96.

The fake photo looks good but not really.

During the cold war time old Soviet Union pushed his little neighbour many ways and, among other things, wanted Finnair to buy this plane, with no luck:

Quoting Andaman (Reply 2):

What a ridiculous comment on that photo..the photographer say, "....the plane almost hit the water tower..."  Yeah sure

Quoting American777 (Thread starter):

That site always makes my computer freeze....try not to go there if necessary.

Good job on the retouched photo though....when my computer finally came back to life. But very realistic.

I've seen it before, but what is it doing on MyAviation? Shouldn't it be on the modifed airliner photos website?

Must've been someone's idea of a joke... but why it hasn't been removed by now is anyone's guess!
