    Strange John le Bon didn’t mention this.

    Mention it to who? I haven’t been in an audiochat since this news story was published.

    I saw the story for the first time myself a day or two ago. At first, I also thought the footage looked suspicious.

    However, ‘Riverfire’ is a real thing. They (city/state government?) organise an event along the Brisbane River once per year which involves — among other things — low-flying military planes. Don’t ask me why. I went along once, and can confirm that the ‘fighter jets’ flying at low altitude are real. And loud AF.

    Do they fly these larger planes at low altitude as well? I don’t know, don’t remember seeing that the year I went. But in this case, I wouldn’t be so quick to call ‘fake’.

    But I don’t blame other people if they believe the footage looks fake.

    Cheers.

      Preview for the newspapers with practice run two days before
      www.brisbanetimes.com.au/natio…
      Exif data matches for amateur photographers’ picture of the practice.

      These are not potato lens images,, they are of high quality
      e.g. another plane in the same display.

      I think we have fallen into the Cluesforum default trap that photos have been “shopped”.

      Why on earth would there be such a major deception involving so many amateur photographers manipulating their exif data and the world’s media for such a minor event?

      Interestingly, at the same time, the Australian Defence Force was involved in a suspicious event – the search for the missing sailors [alleged] in the Golden Globe “ronujnd the world ” yacht race. A great media story in itself…..

      Is it gives people a chance that might have been around the area to completely forget everything that they didn’t see that day. Why do you think it’s real? Why would a plane buzz a populated area? How is that safe or sensible?

            but hey , maybe it is totally fake …….i am surprised no fart voices raised it …..go the man on the spot in canada ……fair play ab ,you have ,without any doubt created , the most logical website in the world ….the FACT you are being encoraged to dilute the fakeologist brand into YT , fayegaipedia , discord , FARTS and all your “fan links” that that in the past ,have failed to mention , or openly ridiculed the fak brand speaks volumes.

              the term fakeologist perhaps requires some clarification however………the distinction of considering oneself a FAKEOLOGIST has been , somehow diluted by terms like , who are the fakeologists ,the fakeologist himself or are you a fakeologist……
