    sorry, the company privacy security thing changed the link and i didn't notice.
    http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=XRCbkBfdBrQ

    should work now.

    edit: what makes you think its fake? I thought it was too but I didn't see anywhere where they changed something from an rc to a real plane.

    It's definitely fake; at one point I saw a video of an interview with the 'pilot' and his attitude struck me as being very different to what I would expect after a near-death experience like that. I can't find that page again at the moment, but you might want to take a look at this:



    However, even though this video is faked, the stunt it shows is entirely possible. To the best of my knowledge it's never been done in a plane carrying a pilot, but it's something people manage in smaller radio-controlled models from time to time:

    Did MythBusters not deal with that already in a pretty conclusive way ?

    A split second before the wing comes off the camera loses track of the plane, I think that's the swit chover point. After that the reflections are too perfect, I do a lot of cgi and that looks like cgi to me. Secondly the break in the wing is too clean, there's no twisted metal or jagged edges and the wing rib at the root is perfect, no buckling or damage of any kind. Thirdly the grass dosn't move in the prop wash after the plane has landed.

    Yeah, I thought it was blatant from the start; it just doesn't look right.

    And look at the way it lands.. What happened to the laws of physics, out the door eh?

    It's rendered, it's pretty blatantly obvious, sorry.

    I could tell it was cgi during the first 5 seconds.

    The zoom and the shakycam effect were just too obvious. CGI videos like that are always obvious because of the shakycam effect and horrible focus pulling.

    That video is totally fake - as someone who creates CGI for a living it I don't even think it looks real.

    It's also quite old, I recall seeing this on a Houdini forum some time back (Houdini is a powerful effects program - mainly used for particle stuff) where it was being ripped apart by a bunch of effects artists for it's lack of realism (IIRC it was a student's demo reel, perhaps it was something from a small effects firm).

    That said:
    The maneuver is very much possible and has even been animated in such a way to show what could be possible in the right circumstances.
    I have a relative that is a Pilot and was the first man to fly the Boeing 777 in Canada - he told me that the animation movement looks very realist, but even he said that it was a total fake and even looked animated.
