    Saw that the other day, some of the guys at work said it was fake - I believe it is real. That plane has a lot of power and I would guess the thrust to weight ratio is huge. He did a hell of a job!

    I also think its real those Xtras and Suhkois and others like them have power to burn and will hang off the prop. One hell of a job flying

    Utterly and completely BS fake. I even heard the news talking about this just this morning. Done by a clothing firm for publicity. Irrespective of the source, it just looks like CGI.

    I'm really disappointed guys.
