Internet Hoax: Final Moments of Doomed Air France Plane (Fake)

June 19, 2009 | Posted in: Travel Tips

Amazing the time some people have on their hands – by that I mean, time for posting alleged photographs of terrified Air France passengers in their “final moments”. But don’t be fooled.

These photos – which are scary as hell – ought to be, since they were the work of well-paid professionals from Hollywood. Look closely, and you’ll recognize scenes from the TV show, “Lost”.

Why do people do this? Hey, they’ve done it before – remember the famous 9/11 photo of the guy on top of one of the World Trade towers, with the onrushing plane in the background? That was debunked over at Snopes.com – which also debunked this latest Air France hoax.

Anytime you see anything that looks even the least bit “off” – check with the folks at Snopes: that’s their mission, debunking (or confirming) urban legends – or the latest internet crap.
