  1. That is a cargo plane, not a 737.

  2. Fake picture. That’s not a 737. That plane in this picture has crashed into a building. Why would this site put up that picture?

  3. I was wondering about the picture. Another website also used a fake picture.
    The plane pretty much went underground and so there is nothing to see. It would be fine to show that or nothing.
    why the fake picture?
