Fake as hell lol. And the "thump" even happens a split second BEFORE it makes impact. Can't even sync his CGI audio correctly...

3- How can a tiny, lightweight drone do this kind of damage to a plane wing? Is the wing made of matchsticks?


Look up some pictures of bird strikes. You'd be surprised what a small, light weight object can do.

I know what a bird strike can do....at cruising speed.

As was pointed out 737 winglets are fiberglass and rather fragile. While the video is totally BS the damage isn't necessarily outlandish if it were to happen.

And quite a few of those bird strikes were on takeoff and climb.

maybe you should use your eyes and brain and common sense too...tornadoes with wind speeds up to 300 miles per hour can take ordinary extremely light weight objects and punch holes in concrete blocks and brick. A 747 moves at 500 miles per hour, hitting even mundane, light weight objects at those speeds can have catastrophic results.

To be fair, the winglets on larger aircraft are more robust, so I initially agreed with him about the damage. But it was pointed out that the 737, which this video was shot on, uses a lightweight fiberglass winglet, so the damage would be about right.

As mentioned earlier the B737 winglet is mostly made of fiberglass with a tiny metal strip on the leading edge.

Ill admit i was wrong...but i would like to point out that that plane was not travelling anywhere near 500MPH
