    Truly unbelievable flying.

    Don't know how old this is, but regardless, this is some masterful 'flying' or rather masterful disaster recovery.

    I've read on several sites that this is a very creative hoax.

    HAHA FAKE.. no plane can fly like that wihout a wing. even thoughi have seen that f18 video where he lands with half of one wing. that was incredible. this video is fake. its clearly an rc plane at the end with a cut. hahah =)
    nice find though
    happy flying

    Not so fast there . It is likely a fake, but your statement is however inccurate I believe. If you've ever seen world class aerobatic pilots with high performance machines, you can often see them sustain very long periods of straight line, knife edge flight close to the ground. In that scenario, the wings are at 90 degrees to the ground & are practically useless as the only things keeping the plane up in the air at that time are the side of the fuselage and the propeller. Near the end of this video, you can see that the rudder is pointing up to keep the nose high as it would in a knife edge flight

    Similarly, you can also see planes in a controlled fall straight down tail first for long periods of time. The plane almost behaves like a helicopter provided it has enough power and is in the hands of a very skilled pilot.

    So, this may well be a hoax, but it does not fall in the realm of the impossible. Unlikely yes, but impossible, no. I would have thought it is is a model airplane aside from the fact a pilot comes out of the cockpit at the end. So if this is a hoax, this is very well done indeed.

    have u ever seen a plane other then an RC plane land like that before. If i ever landed like that in reall life with any plane it would most likely be my last. Even though i am sure some of the very first reall landings couldnt have been far from that =) STALLL HORNNNNNNNNNNN BAHHHHHHHHHHHH BAMMMM OUCHHH wow im still alive full take off power lets do it all again =) If u ever been flying with rc planes u can tell that they most often land like this. its obviously in my eyes a good replica rc plane to the reall thing.. they do a cut scene just before it turns... this is my point of view only hehe, dont meen to get on anyones nerves or anything.. there are tons of videos online with amazing video editing.. hope all is well

    Actually, I agree with both of you

    I personally would like to see more video and see the pilot walk off the plane and make comments about his horrific experience. Otherwise we can debate this till we're blue in the face and still don't know for sure. LOL

    I had lfying RC and saw flight even a powered pig (actual scale pig animal) or a grass cutter no problem so far , also for the flying without a wing I know (don't remeber if discovery channel or something like that) for a F-14 or F-15 to land after loosing a wing , but in this case the computer was palying a great role helping the pilot to compensate the plane.
    more details on the video and explanations in the avweb site: http://www.avweb.com/

    A lot about this on the AOPA forums. The general consensus is that it is a fake. Here are some links I found there which you may be interested in:

    You're quite right about the landing. The plane stopped about as fast as RC planes stop after landing. But the most obvious give away I think is a wing falling off. I doubt that any aerobatic planes of that calibre would simply drop a wing during a low G manoeuvre particularly (vertical roll) . Still this is a very skillful RC pilot and I still maintain this would not be totally impossible in a real plane with an expert pilot except that I would expect to see more damage after the landing.
