Thanks for the feedback. Seemed somewhat impossible to me also but just wanted to be sure. Looks like an RC model with the way it flew (massively overpowered). As for my lame sig quote, it was bad taste but I don't care: I had a selfish point to make and it'll be gone soon enough.

Yep, a fake. . . however I've had a similar failure with an R/C aircraft, and you can get them back down without adding much more damage than they already have. If you time it right you can in fact get them back on the gear. . .but that's just for extra credit.

If you'd like to see some video footage of this sort of thing that is real (though R/C), take a look:

First part is RC model, last scene is clearly CGI with real life humans and poor "shaky camera" effects added later.

The screams are really silly and commonplace: "OMG! RUUUUNNNN!" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif
