    Didn't see the plane on TV, but I'm sure the people at BBC would've checked before putting up an image.

    It's obviously not a photoshop - look at the orientation of shadows on the wings, look at the interface of the falling water and the smoke.

    The plane does look weird. But I think your right.

    Somthing just doesn't look right with the way the water is comming out of the plane.

    It releases all its water at once. Not like a fire hose or anything, more like a bucket.

    Why, have you ever see the water come out of the airplane before?
    I have, and it looks perfectly fine.


    Why is it that every time we get a picture up on GD these days it turns into a 'conspiracy theory' ? :rolleyes:

    Why are you so complacent, Cyrus? Are you sure you're not brainwashed?! Of course the BBC is a conspiracy! It's conspiring with the agricultural cropsprayers, and the forestry service. Forging photographs is only the beginning! Soon... they'll implant chips into Americans' brains... and suddenly everyone will spell "color" as "colour" :eek:

    Me, brainwashed?

    Now if you will excuse me, I am going to go watch FOX news, they number one trusted news source in America, for a 12 hour shift.....

    I was saying that it's cover up.
    If it's not really plane I thought it would be there to make it look better for the article.

    That was extremely poor taste on your part to cry cover up with nothing to back it up other than, 'it doesnt seem right'.....:rolleyes:

    Turkey is a relatively dry country. The government has been covering this up since 1923. The people there have been brainwashed into thinking that the half-empty glasses of water they have been drinking are actually half-full. This ruse nearly came undone when the fire broke out. It happened at a time when the airport management was taking their water break and there was no water for putting out the fire. They paniced and produced this obviously touched up photo of a 'plane' purporting to drop 'water' on the fire. Good catch.
