A video tribute to a pilot's skill and courage.
« on: August 26, 2009, 04:15:24 AM »
This video is showing what I think is the greatest feat of skill and courage I have ever seen.
Remember that this could never have been practised. The pilot successfully saved his own life with a miracle piece of flying.



I somehow doubt if he ever fitted a new wing to this plane. Something tells me that there is a major design flaw.

That footage is widely known in aviation circles as a fake and was nicely edited with footage of an RC plane that purposely lost it's wing and a real plane on the ground (and some nice diaglogue overdubs). Pretty fancy flying nonetheless but no heroism here.

I think your overreacting AVIATOR.

All he did was telling the truth, i´ve seen that video thousand of times before as well and i know it is a fake, but that doesn´t mean you have to stop posting.

Exactly! I just didn't want you believing it was real that's all. I enjoy all your posts and pictures, please continue. I didn't mean to sound critical, I just didn't want you to be duped. Most of what you find on 'the net' today can't be believed.
