Jet Airliner With Disabled Landing Gear Saved by Pick Up Truck –Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
A YouTube link of a video is circulating the Internet that appears to be a news report of a miraculous landing of passenger jet airliner with a disabled nose gear. As the plane descends on the runway a driver in a pick up truck maneuvers the vehicle just below the plane’s nose gear to assist the crippled aircraft in a safe landing.
This video looks amazing but it is a fake produced for a Nissan Frontier television advertisement.
There was video found on YouTube of the complete Nissan commercial but it was taken down.
