Plane Crash Hoax...?

I saw this video while I was at work and I was impressed that the pilot survived and appeared unhurt.
As they say looks can be deceiving.  I did a bit of research and discovered that this was a hoax, from the plane flying to the pilot getting out.  When I first saw this, I was very impressed and commented to a fellow co-worker "Man that guy is the guy you need to go to Vegas, with luck like that, he would own a casino."   
     Well when you watch it again and again, some things start to jump out at me, the big thing was that the plane seemed toylike with the flight characteristics.  Well I decided to post the video under "lucky Pilot" and apparently others have reached the same conclusion and proved that it was a hoax.

    Here is the video in question...

    Now I did remember a F-15 landing with most of a wing missing, so I will  find that video to post an actual airplane landing missing most of a wing.


  1. Yep, reality beats tricks EVERY time... And that IS an amazing video of the F-15!!!

  2. Story I heard going through F-15 transition was that there was more lift generated by the fuselage alone of an F-15 than the entire F-4. It certainly was a LOT of fun to fly.

    1. Juvat, considering the Phantom had a glide ratio of 1:2, I'd believe it!
