  3. Well the wikipedia page said temperatures range from 16 to 24 which might mean the record low is 16 and so it could be defenitely higher than that. Still its a possibility!

    Gokule..ninte thala mandel allathe aarkum ithrem valiya samsayam thonnulla :P

    Thanks for commenting people!

  4. First of all , i appreciate you for spending ur precious time for noting down so many important things! This photo is a fake one i guess. I really think its very difficult for a memory card to survive this tragedy. Secondly, as u mentioned, they should have heard the sound of engines. A person at that situation taking a photo is hard to digest! I feel that this pic is created by an intelligent person to spread curiosity among people. . Thank you :)

  5. 1> wearing the jacket can be perfectly fine. he might have done that to save space in his bag n later might have hold it in his hand.
    2> temperature on that day was between 13-14.
    3> my friends know Photoshop n have seen them working putting a plane a date is what even i can do.
    4> if the size of picture in email is same as this; i suspect that it has been done intendedly to hide any trace of modification.
    5> there is so much grain on picture which might have been put for same reason. why will there be grain in an digital camera.
    6> how did the camera survived; the temperature in n around building was 2777 degree celsius?

    newez, a good write.

  7. I found your points very interesting! I've two comments so far, it is TOTALLY normal in US to wear a jacket and two-three layers of thin clothes during a sunny day. As a Californian, I wanted to point out that we always have days that are super-sunny AND cold because of the chilling wind. So sometimes we HAVE to wear jacket and stuffs like that to prevent from freezing to a point where you're uncomfortable.

    My second point is about the recreation of date. It would be a little visible (even with Photoshop) if they tried to CHANGE from a random date to 09/11/01. But they could've just added this date to a photograph where no date was shown along with the photo. It is easier to add something that doesn't exist (in Photoshop) than to CHANGE something thats already in a photograph.

    > Chances are less for him to be an American (or particularly his camera to be from America) because we write our dates in MONTH/DATE/YEAR format. As you can see, the photograph has a format of DATE/MONTH/YEAR which i guess is mostly the Asian way of writing dates.

  8. Also, why is the fast-moving plane VERY CLEAR in the photograph?! I understand there are cameras that could capture the perfect shot even with a very fast-moving object. But those kind of cameras are smart enough to get you a picture with better clarity than this photo.

    Since our topic-photo is full of grains, I wonder why it did an AMAZING job at capturing the flight without any blur.

  11. Great analysis...We in general, either ignore such things or tag them as fake and move ahead. Great to see the way you have approached it...

  12. @lovebug

    i would agree wid what he said.It is point to be noted how fast moving plane is so clear in the photograph.
    off course it is a work of photoshop.

  16. See the photo without seeing the plane for a while...Wat it appears to me is that the photo is a real photo taken on 09/11/2001 bt the plane alone is a graphics on it...
    Good work naveen...
