    I say it isn't, and that it's a clip from the '02 Russian airshow disaster. Guy on another board claims it's photoshopped because the jet's too big compared to the people.

    Thoughts?

    I think so, why would it be so torn up if it hadn't even hit the ground yet? Come to think of it, it does look rather large.

    cuz it collided with another airplane in mid-air, causing the crash...


    But I have no clue if this image is fake.

    going with faked. It's obvious that they photoshopped the guy with the pink shirt out of that picture.

    Fighter jets are actually pretty massive. A lot bigger than you think they are.

    I've seen the video of this and I don't think it collided with another plane, surely it would have suffered far more damage than that if it collided with a plane.

    In the video, it appears to skim the trees. I think at high speed, trees would do this damage.

    I think its legit.


    Edit: In the video it comes down much shallower than that. Don't know now.

    That was my exact argument. Those planes are bigger than they look. IIRC, the plane hit the tarmac almost flat on its stomach first, and then probably skipped/rolled.

    it's real. Jet fighters are friggin huge... wingspan on an f-18 is like 35 feet, over 50 feet long.

    the ratios in that photo are perfectly realistic...

    right!

    because the authenticity of that picture is directly related to the amount of people that died.

    That's not the Ukraine crash, though.

    if it was real wouldn't the jet engines have burned out and be off?

    fuel isn't stored inside the engine, so if it was just on fire from the crash it wouldn't make sense for the engines to be the only thing on fire.

    and the dimensions of the plane are too big.. it looks far bigger than a 37ft wingspan.

    lol @ people thinking fighters are the same size as the family station wagon.

    It's probably the same depth illusion as that grounded ship & the hotel in the foreground.
