Two unbelievable photos taken from inside the Air France aircraft before it crashed: FALSE according to snopes!
E.T. sent this.
DS: My G-d, we only IMAGINE what it's like to be caught in a disaster in an airplane: but to see it with our very own eyes?! Frightening.
The extraordinary photographer, who kept his cool even in the last moments of his own life and took these photos.
The world saw the disappearance of an Air France aircraft during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris.
Below are two unbelievable photos taken from inside the aircraft before it crashed.
The two photos attached were apparently taken by one of the passengers just after the collision but before the aircraft crashed. The photos were retrieved from the camera's memory stick. You will never get to see photos like this. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tailplane and vertical fin of the aircraft. In the second photo, one of the passengers is being sucked out of the gaping hole.
These photos were found in a digital Casio Z750, amidst the remains in Serra do Cachimbo. Although the camera was destroyed, the Memory Stick was recovered. Investigating the serial number of the camera, the owner was identified as Paulo G. Muller, an actor of a theatre for children known in the outskirts of Porto Alegre . It can be imagined that he was standing during the turbulence, he managed to take these photos, just seconds after the tail loss the aircraft plunged. So the camera was found near the cockpit. The structural stress probably ripped the engines away, diminishing the falling speed, protecting the electronic equipment but not unfortunately the victims. Paulo Muller leaves behind two daughters, Bruna and Beatriz.
Comment from E.T. who had originally sent the pictures:
