Message Subject Jumbo Jet is Barrel Rolled From Mangkhut

What a bunch of suckers.

Things that did NOT happen yesterday: Mangkhut brings flood of fake typhoon vids

Passenger jet doing barrel roll ahead of emergency landing.

Sounding like a legit news source, but actually nothing more than a Facebook page, “Times News International” released a clip with a caption saying “Dragon Air hit by typhoon,” which shows a large passenger jet doing some ridiculous aerial gymnastics before cutting away to what was made to look like the situation post emergency landing. The caption claimed that the incident had been “confirmed” by Beijing Capital Airlines, which (Clue #1) does not own the Cathay Pacific-run Dragon Air.

As described further by Aviation 24, the clip was actually an animation combined with real news footage of a Beijing Capital Airlines Airbus A320 enduring a hard landing recently at Macau Airport.

How many people have seen it you ask? Almost 10 million.
