    If you know what you are doing, it's possible to bring a silo down like that.
    However, with that blue silo right next to that old cement silo they were doing a risky job. Back in the 80s those blue silos were $100,000+ each so I can't imagine what they cost on the market today. A great uncle of mine used to take the cement silos from the top down, walking and balancing around the rim (which is under 3 inches wide) as he pulled and knocked it apart.

    I was thinking "fake" at first, but I think it's mainly the up speed that makes it look unnatural.
    As @Torren61, I find it very satisfying to watch indeed.

    Quote from the Youtube clip I posted: One wing landing. Pilot of this aircraft is just amazing. It make successfully landing on one wing.
    It was clearly insinuating that it was a genuine incident. As Toto's Dad says, many model aircraft fly on brute engine power. There are plenty of clips on the net showing a flying lawn mower! Model power-to-weight ratio designs don't translate to real life aircraft. :)

    The pilot is on the ground with a remote control in his hand.

    You don't use Photoshop to edit videos.

    That's a model airplane. They can do some crazy stuff with those things with the right motors and props. They can fly them around like helicopters with the prop facing up the entire time. There's even one shaped just like a push mower that flies. Crazy.

    What sources do you rely on for fact checking?

    Thank you.

    I don't see the 'tells' of layering that Photoshop/Final Cut and the like leave in their wake.

    I'm entirely photoshopped too. I don't actually exist. Really, my total non-existence been properly fact-checked and everything.....o_O

    Anyway, Fred Dibnah was so cool. He could blow all kinds of shrit up, with none of that health & safety stuff, just flat caps and cigarettes...

    The one-wing plane landing is a notoriously fake video.

    You can't make videos with Photoshop, so it must be real.
