Photos from inside a jet aircraft just as it collided with Air France flight 447 – Fiction!

Photos from inside a jet aircraft just as it collided with Air France flight 447 – Fiction!

Summary of 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.
The Truth:

The 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 site.

Air France flight 447 was reported missing after it encountered towering thunderstorm and the Airbus 330 aircraft cashed into the Atlantic off the coast of Brazil in June 2009.  The incident is still being investigated.

The lack of focus and poor depth of field in the photos leads us to believe that the images were very most likely electronically snipped from a YouTube video of the Lost pilot episode that was posted on the internet.
