In the preceding post, we discussed a video -- allegedly made by ISIS -- which purported to show the downing of that Russian jet over Egypt. Analysts now saw that the video is a fake
. That is to say: It may show a
genuine disaster, but not the
disaster that took place over the Sinai on Saturday.
But Steve Chadwick OBE, a former RAF commander with 26 years experience, has said the video not only shows the wrong type of plane, but also the wrong kind of fire.
He told Mirror Online: "It’s laughable that they might claim that is an Airbus 321. That is not an Airbus.
"Even though the footage is very grainy that is an aircraft with the engines under the tail.
"If the engine was on fire it would be coming from under the wing."
He said: "If that was hit with a surface-to-air missile it would obliterate it. It would disintegrate it and you would be looking at confetti. It’s just smoking.
"What they’ve done is they’ve found [footage of] a plane with an engine fire.
"That’s air-to-air footage, it’s an aircraft following at a similar speed."
Chadwick thinks that the footage shows an Ilyushin-62, a very different aircraft.
In fact, there really is no evidence that ISIS had anything to do with the production of this video. But if they didn't make it, who did? Why would someone try to frame ISIS? It's hard to believe that a state actor would do an amateurish job.
