Not that it is fake, it is certainly real and definetely an aweseome shot.
I am convinced that this is not the original photographer. My first instinct was, "hey, those dont look like mountains from Alaska" they look ALOT more like colorado, or even california."
Secondly, and most obvious. Mr. Mays states in the comments "FL 330". I.e. "flight level, 33,000 ft." Well he is the photographer, he should know this information, right?
This aircraft is very clearly NOT at FL330. Much closer to around 11 or 12,000 ft. For starters, look at the clouds. Those type of clouds are not that high in the sky and even if they just so happend to be on that particular day, they would have covered ALL of that mountain range in the distance. The only POSSIBLE exception would be if it really was Alaska, and Mt. McKinnley was poking its SNOWCOVERED head through the clouds. I see no snow.
I also wrote Mr. Mays and got no reply, i wasnt suprized.
Okay, so call me a dickhead for bashing this guy but I simply think it is a rip-off from somewhere. Scanned from a magazine or taken from a website, etc...
