    Fake as shit. The film switches right around the stall point and the colors
    are even off. Very bad editing and to the people who fell for this, even
    more shame on you! You know what, I bet if you saw a dragon on TV flying
    around New York you would believe it. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

  2. Brad Olds says:

    Why is “US AIR FORCE” written in mirror image on the front of the plane?
    Proof of fakery?

    SustenanceNCovering, you should shut up. Pilots fly people places so u can
    go see ur relatives.

    As magical as it is to fly on airplanes. They are machines and they have
    their limits. Rather unfortunate to see another crew go down.

    hm why pilot not calling FTX emergency ,

    Driving Airplanes is a really dumb way to make a living.

    Wow, talk about “pilot error”… lets take the largest cargo plane in the
    air force and turn it completely sideways in a turn at just a couple
    hundred feet off the ground. Yeah, that’s not gonna end well. Sad thing is,
    you can see where he lost lift, and he still had time to recover (probably)
    if he stopped turning and flattened it out immediately, but seemed to be
    unaware that he stalled it, or possibly he just panicked and froze up.

    The C-17 is amazingly maneuverable, it’s top notch. But you’d be nuts to
    take any plane with less thrust ratio than a fighter jet, into *that* turn
    at *that* altitude.

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – A pilot’s overly aggressive maneuvering and
    overconfidence were blamed in an investigative report on a C-17 plane crash
    at an Anchorage military base that killed all four airmen on board.
    Besides pilot error, the crew on board was also faulted for failing to
    notice the dangerous situation that culminated with the plane stalling and
    crashing into some woods July 28 at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

    “The mishap pilot violated regulatory provisions and multiple flight manual
    procedures, placing the aircraft outside established flight parameters at
    an attitude and altitude where recovery was not possible,” the report’s
    executive summary says.
    Bob Hall, a base spokesman, said Friday evening he didn’t know which of the
    three pilots was at the controls when the massive $184 million plane
    crashed during a training demonstration for an air show. A Pacific Air
    Forces spokeswoman also said the pilot’s identity would not be disclosed
    out of sensitivity to the families.
    “Who sat where in the plane is not being released,” said Capt. Alysia
    Harvey.
    Pacific Air Forces, based at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Hawaii,
    released the results of its investigation Friday evening.
    The probe “found clear and convincing evidence the cause of the mishap was
    pilot error,” the report says. It also found evidence that other factors
    including overconfidence and misplaced motivation contributed to the crash.
    “Furthermore, the mishap co-pilot and mishap safety observer did not
    realize the developing dangerous situation and failed to make appropriate
    inputs.”
    When the stall warning sounded, the co-pilot responded by saying
    “temperature, altitude lookin’ good,” according to the report.
    The investigation also found evidence that the flight deck crew ignored
    warnings.
    According to investigators — and video prior to the crash — the pilot made
    an aggressive right turn after the C-17’s initial climb-out and left turn.
    The stall-warning system was activated as the plane banked, but the pilot
    continued the turn and there was no way to avoid a stall.
    “Although the pilot eventually attempted to recover the aircraft, he
    employed incorrect procedures, and there was not sufficient altitude to
    regain controlled flight,” the report says.
    The C-17 crashed into a wooded area about a minute after taking off,
    sending a fireball hundreds of feet into the air and damaging a section of
    the Alaska Railroad’s main track.
    Killed were Maj. Michael Freyholtz, 34, of Hines, Minn.; Maj. Aaron Malone,
    36, of Anchorage; Capt. Jeffrey Hill, 31, of York, Pa., and Master Sgt.
    Thomas Cicardo, 47, of Anchorage. Cicardo, who was not a pilot, was
    posthumously promoted to senior master sergeant Friday.
    Freyholtz and Malone were pilots assigned to the Alaska Air National
    Guard’s 249th Airlift Squadron. Hill was a pilot assigned to Elmendorf’s
    517th Airlift Squadron, and Cicardo was the 249th Airlift Squadron
    loadmaster and affiliated with the Alaska National Guard.
    No one on the ground was hurt.

    The video might be altered but the event is real. You can view the after
    action crash photos online.

    Fake fakety fuckass mutha fukkin fake!

    well don’t you think he was asking for it by tilting tons and tons of
    steal, left and right, and left and right, like a bird.

    This is fake people. I’m a graphic designer so I would know :)

    That didn’t look like pilot error to me. That looked like control surface
    failure. It looks like the left aileron PCU failed, sending full servo
    control to the aileron, causing the entire left wing to suddenly lose lift.
    Even if the pilot tried to do that on purpose, he wouldn’t have been able
    to, due to the C-17’s fly by wire system, it would have taken a few more
    seconds to roll like that. You can see the pilot struggling to retain
    control by fiddling with the rear elevators and right aileron, but to no
    avail.

    Flying that plane that way was much like drive a freight truck, like ride a
    bicycle in a wobbling track

    Visible fake

  17. Eric Peine says:

    If you have ZERO Aviation experience or even C-17 experience Shut the F Up.
    Have you read the reports? Do you know what happened? Now for all of folks
    that say it is faked… BURN IN HELL. If you do a little research you will
    find that this is actually the footage taken from the tower of the crash in
    Elmendorf. As one or two have said already, the video was reveresed/mirror
    immaged. There were reports of this with video, minus impact on CNN and
    FOX. I was a C-17 Crew Chief. I know for a fact that this did happen. They
    were practicing for an air show to demonstrate how the aircraft can
    maneuver. An error was made and they paid with thier lives. I know people
    that were friends of the crewmen that were killed. No I have not read the
    reports, but one of the maintenance / human factor classses I taught, we
    were shown the FULL video with FULL audio and the impact/explosion that
    followed. We decided not to use the video in the class.

    WOW O.O take off was WAY TOO STEEP it stalled and the pilot tried to get it
    back

  19. Christian Abudinen says:

    Pilot made a lot of mistakes, just look at the take off, he almost staled
    the plane, had to make a sharp turn to the right to compensate, he lost
    more speed, and then turns the plane to the other side with almost no
    speed, plane had to come down like it did, basic aeronautics, he probably
    flew this plane thousands of hours and got way too cocky with it. Terrible
    loss, since I hate seeing pilots dying in accidents like this, but he
    should have remembered he was not flying an F-18.

    Yep that was pilot error no doubt
