Landing Light Fake Or Real?

Sun Jun 17, 2001 12:16 am

Hey, what do you think of this picture, it's not my picture tho.
Look at the funny white dot on the nose of the plane. The photographer told me it's the landing light and maybe it is but it looks fake. Whaddya think? fake or real? Or maybe it was the camera, i beleive a digital which made it look "fake"

That's real. The Dash-8 has a light on the nose.

Check out this Dash-8. Do you see the landing light on the nose? I don't. I see them on the nose-wheel.

It's pretty hard to tell but I found one that shows it.

I just don't get it! Why do certain individuals feel the need to make proclaim a photo a 'fake', just because it looks a little odd. The recent tirade against certain photos taken at HKG and now this. Heaven help me if I should submit a photo that looks a little strange.

I do give you credit though, at least you communicated with the photographer first before making this topic, I hope he gave you permission to post the photo here in order to accuse it of fakery.

Here are couple of better shots that show the location of the optional landing light.

I like digital images - they are getting better all the time. One thing though - one must be careful with the saturation of color - fore sometimes the colors can be blown way out of proportion. You know what I mean?

Oh thanks for pointing those out. I was so busy looking at stupid light that I missed them. I too have to agree that they are real.

I agree 100% with you. It's bad enough to call a picture fake, but even worse if there is a clear reason that makes it real.
The fact that someone think a picture of a Dash-8 with a nose-light must be fake, just prooves their lack of knowledge about that aircraft. (No offence.)
