UPDATED 24 Jun 2009: Today I decided to update this blog to clarify that the pictures are a hoax. A reader posted the comment with the link to prove that these pictures are hoax. I am not pulling out this posting because it will be information to future readers about the status of the picture.
Thank you Caranthir for the information.
I subscribed to one Yahoo Groups and this article below was sent to my email.
Yesterday the world saw the disappearance of an A330 Air France during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris. Very ironic that a day before got a mail of the photos taken by a passenger on a flight mins after a mid air collision, and minutes before the crash of the said aircraft.
Two shots taken inside the plane before it crashed. Unbelievable! Photos taken inside the GOL B 737 aircraft that was involved in a mid air collision and crashed.......
AB737 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 midstof the Amazon jungle. The crew and passengers of the Embraer Legacy had no ideawhat they had hit. The B737 however crashed, kiling all crew and passengers on board.
The two photos attached 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 these. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tail plane 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 wasstanding 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. Paolo Muller leaves behind two daughters, Bruna and Beatriz.
