Headon from the AA ramp tower ... this photo was used (stolen) and put in a <a href="/graphics/wtc_hoax_tourist.jpg" target=_blank>hoax picture</a> supposedly taken from the WTC just before 'impact'.

Good picture, such a shame it was put to such bad use. Of course the biggest mistake with that hoax is that a 757 from AA didnt even hit the WTC- it was a 767-300.

It was used in the Accidental Tourist photo, which is where I first saw it. But I just think it's a really cool pic in general. It shows the size of the plane and is just an overall good shot.

I'm American and for some reason I feel that the person who did the hoax picture is american too and that's very dis-respectful of all the people in the world only a select few could be happy about this hoax picture, just really gets to me, my brother died in the North tower! I was supposed to be there but I missed my train and saw impact on the walk to work, my heart dropped and I didn't know what was going on

What a damn discusting thing to do with a photo.If people have nothing better to do than play around with such a painfull day in world history,and someones excellent photo that they are kind enough to share here. Than there is seriously something wrong with their head.This is a superb photo and I see now why water marks are added.

This picture has a great angle. It is quite disrespectful to take this photo and involve it in a hoax involving the most emotional day (probably) in US History. Only a truly heartless person would do this. Anyways, great photo!

Great pic showing just how massive an airliner is up close. Whoever used this photo for the hoax pic obviously didn't know that 767s were used in the WTC attacks.

Apperantly, the picture that shows the tourist about to get hit by this plane was the original person who made the hoax in the first place...

Very nice picture showing immense detail... and by the way, before firing off your yappers, try doing a little research first... the "hoax" photo was taken years before the 11 September events and was initially just a joke among friends -- never intended for its unfortunate eventual use. It shames me to see so many people ready to condemn without even bothering to do an origin search first.

Possibly the most (in)famous stock picture of a 757, and a good looking photo at that. Plus, the so called "tourist guy" was quite entertaining for us that had to explain to the masses why it was a fake.

VERY poorly researched hoax. They could have at least used a picture of a 767...

From previous comment: "the "hoax" photo was taken years before the 11 September events and was initially just a joke among friends"
Might be true, but 1 what a coincidence then. and 2 in that case at a post 9-11 date another (or the same but that would really be ridiculous) person retouched the hoax shot to add '091101' at bottom right. So I can not, and I'm sure very few people can, actually disprove what you are saying, but it's a fact that someone has been very disrespectful here, and unthoughtful at that with the mistake. Need I say I remember the events very well myself too..?
