AIR FRANCE CRASH PHOTOS- Hoax or not?
« on: June 19, 2009, 07:12:10 PM »
Someone had sent me this via e-mail concerning the Air France plane crash. Thing is, I don't know whether it's true or not? I suspect a fabrication.

Supposedly, these pics were taken by a passenger in mid-flight right after the plane started breaking apart.

What do you think?:  linked removed  -username! section moderator flight form Rio to France

Turns out these photos are a hoax that have been floating around cyberspace for quite sometime.
It turns out that these are hoax photos that have been around for several years.

LOL!  Yeah, that would be Evangeline Lilly in one of those pictures.

In reading this Urban Legends refutation, I noticed a common theme that came up much more recently, as well.  The person who originally started this hoax did so as a social experiment to show the world how gullible people tend to be when reading stuff online.  Most recently it was the flap about news agencies being too quick to accept as factual what they read on wikipedia.  Nothing different.  Same old story. ::)
