Photos from inside a jet aircraft just as it collided with Air France

Summary of the eRumor: A forwarded email with photos said to have
been taken inside the cabin of a Boeing 737 as it collided with with Air
France flight 447 going from Rio De Janeiro to Paris.
photos are a hoax. These images are not from an airline
disaster but taken from the pilot episode the popular ABC television
program "Lost." Similar images can be found on the
ABC Lost web

A real example of the eRumor as it has
appeared on the Internet:
Yesterday the world saw the disappearance of an A330 Air
France during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris
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.....
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 could be
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, 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, from a previous relationship.
The two photos attached above were apparently taken by one of the
passengers in the B737, 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. Photos taken inside the plane.
