This is an old video, I've seen it before and I thought it was proven a hoax (anyway) aside from the fact its HORRIBLY done. Someone filmed a commercial airline, took it into after effects and messed around with it some. Stupid..
Once agian, the guy who filmed this is mentally ill, he barely knows how to operate his camera.
You are a liar, prove yourself, show us the thread that you claim proved this to be a hoax.
You are trying to explain away this, you think people will believe you though because you claim that it has "already been proven to be a fake", when in fact it hasn't. you also mention After Effects, true, this could be done in after effects, but the man who filmed this is not competent enough to run After Effects, this is real film transcoded to video through a program he has on his xp os computer. I truly feel sorry for the delusional man.
Tell me, does a sane person film pigeons and claim that they are "Demon Birds"?
does a sane person film a car mirror inside of his garage and claim there are demons or aliens in the mirror?
Does a sane person film a street light and claim it's a demon?
This man is not sane, he has some serious problems, he's also very paranoid, he has no reason to fake this stuff.

The only way a aircraft can do what this one does. If it has thrusters.
Either that or there was a pilot that day needing a change of undies after hitting one heck of an air pocket or turbulence or something similar.

My guess is that the image stabilization of the camera focused on the waving branches. When the plane drops, the branches are moving to the left, at the same speed as the plane. The camera stabilizes this motion and the plane seems to stop its movement relative to the branches and the camera. Only the ertical component of the plane's movement cannot be compensated, giving the imporession of a sudden stop and drop.
I bet that this camera operated at maximum zoom, including digital zoom. In that case only a small part of the image sensor is actually being used and the camera has lots of room to select a slightly different part of the sensor if it thinks that this would reduce unwanted movement.
When the plane's drop ends one of three things happen. The camera notices that the movement is continuous and not the result of shaking hands. Or the branches stop moving with the plane and the camera's logic stops the motion tracking because of this. And finally the active part of the sensor reached the sensor's edge and the camera has no alternative but to use the unstabilized image.
I bet that the camera's logic got confused by the branches moving with the plane. In this case it would be impossible to recreate the effect without knowing the camera model.
Not fake, but an artifact of technology.
