    Moments Before A330 Air France Flight Crashed

    Hats off to the extraordinary photographer, who kept his cool even in his last moments of life and took these photos.

    The world saw the disappearance of an A330 Air France during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris.

    Two shots were taken inside the plane moments before it actually crashed.

    A B737 had a mid air collision with the Embraer Legacy while cruising at 35,000 feet over South America. The Embraer Legacy, though seriously damaged with the  winglet ripped off, managed to make a landing at a nearby airstrip in the midst of the Amazon jungle. The crew and passengers of the Embraer Legacy had no idea what they had hit. The B737 however crashed, killing all crew and passengers on board.

    The two photos below were apparently taken by one of the passengers in the B737, just after the collision and 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 impact with the Embraer Legacy and 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.

    The above photographs that claimed to have been taken inside the plane just before crash are fake. They actually belong to a TV series The Lost. Look at the video down here and in the last you would see the same screens.

    Internet is so fake these days.

      People really fell for this? Terrible! Nobody thought of the picture on top of the WTC with the plane behind the guy! My first thought was the movie Alive, but Lost has the same seen almost.
      This desire to believe shouldn’t surprise anyone, Bush has already proven that people will believe anything!

      Really this is bad on someones thinking. No doubt this human who had published this fake pics should realise this cheap sentimental thoughts. Its a big happeing and people like these take advantages and get paid from these online sources. really this is shamefull.
