It seems like the cartoons I used to watch as a kid would portray the characters trying to run really fast jumping up in the air and their feet would
spin around really fast in the air as they ran away. But of course I thought that's silly, because you can't get any traction trying to run in the
air, and of course I still think that.
But I ran across this plane crash photo where it looks like the man is running on the air just like I used to see in the cartoons...maybe it's an
optical illusion or just a matter of timing, but I compliment the man on his excellent survival skills because whatever he's doing in this photo, and
however he's doing it, he managed to survive the plane crash (I'm guessing that may be his truck it's crashing into?):
Plane Hits Truck, Guatemala, 1976
"Buffeted by crosswinds, a rescue plane crashes into a truck, while trying to land on a mountain highway near Sanarate. Miraculously no one
suffered serious injury."
Does it look to anyone else like he's running in the air?
I'm guessing that's just an optical illusion?
If anyone can explain it, I'm a little curious, thanks.
