Faked video of plane landing safely after losing a wing still making the rounds
The video above has been making the rounds on Facebook and by email. Most of the time the video is titled “When it’s not your turn to die.”
It first appeared more than four years ago and is still going.
The viceo looks convincing but the flight is faked as the video below shows.
Parts of the video shows a real plane but the part where the wing flies off and the landing is done by a radio controlled model plane doing a “knife edge” maneuver often performed by experienced radio controlled model airplane enthusiasts.
