Plane Flying Backwards ??

  1. Jun 1, 2015 #1
    Can anyone explain this ?

    A plane is flying overhead and casting a shadow on the court.
    How can this shadow move backwards given we know the plane
    is not flying backwards ??

    It's very likely that the plane isn't flying backwards, but that the video is being manipulated. Since the video is of poor quality and there's no way to verify anything about it, I'm afraid I'm going to have to lock the thread.
