    Fake. Everything in the background is static and in reasonable focus.

    Fake. The plane is standing still on the ground, they just digitally removed the landing gear. Also it's clear that engines are not running and the plane is exactly in the same position (the same angle and distance from the ground) as standing planes on other photos.

    I understand the scepticism, I was sceptic at first too. But then again why not? I have also seen some pretty amazing stuff with MiGs at airshows before

    Besides, for a landed aircraft it it a little too horizontal, look at a landed MiG and you can see clearly that the engines point in a downwards direction:

    The problem is that the ground disrupts the airflow over the wings.

    are you saying that it is impossible for a plane to fly low over land without crashing?

    No, I'm saying the plane's reactions are much less predictable this close to the ground. I don't doubt it's possible, but I doubt the photo is authentic because there is no evidence of motion paralax. (ie everything is in good focus)

    He was flying at a very slow speed...I dont see what's impossible about taking a clear shot like that with the latest digital equipment. The background appears less focused then the plane and the shadow is there so I cant see anything fake about this. That site doesnt host fake photos btw...

    Slow speeds would make it even more dangerous.

    BTW, it`s a nice site.

    P.S. Here is my small collection of aircraft photos...where is almost none of them with engine exhaust.

    The bear looked at the car, and reflections of fire danced in his eyes. He knew what to do.
