    I'm going to say it was altered, because I can see all of the weight of that thing causing the bottom layers of block to crumble, but once it gets near the very end, is there really enough weight on top to continue crumbling the blocks all the way to the cap?

    It looks kinda funky. I'm guessing it could happen that way, but something don't look right about that particular vid.

    It does look odd, but if pushed I would have to say it is real.
    I think the weirdness stems from the very different materials and structure of the tower, which is heavy and stiff, and the cap which is much lighter and very flexible.
    Because of that they would fall as separate items - maybe the cap collects an air cushion which helps the wobble...

    I believe it. The oddity of how well the demolition proceeded is why you found this video.

    Same with the stunt plane landing. The pilot is a stunt pilot and was darn lucky with the landing.

    IMHO.

    Edit: Alright, I'll go with the consensus on the plane video as a fake.

    The demo video is real. I saw it on more than one news broadcast.

    Interesting that I am not allowed to watch the video that "explains" how the video was made. Coincidence?

    Yep, ain't no way you can argue with the laws of aerodynamics, no matter how good your lawyer is. :)

    I think it's fake. the physics of flight is a very fine balance. even with a monstrous power to weight ratio I don't see some of those maneuvers as possible

    Don't see why it should be a fake. The late great Fred Dibner was always bringing chimney stacks dowm like that.

    I thought from the getgo, the plane you're actually seeing was a model airplane. Those things for the most part fly on the propeller, probably wouldn't make a whole lot of difference to a skilled radio controller whether the airframe was worthy or not.

    I'm not sure either way but I definitely don't rely on Snopes when seeking credible information.
