Its real and the guy was OK
He is a reporter for the then TV station HTV West(now iTV West),Richard Wyatt
I belive he is still working for the TV station

I think it's fake. Why?

1. The camera guy just stands there, no one yells for help.
2. The pilot dips the wing as he approaches the man.
3. He was (supposedly) hit in the head. He fell right over. That plane is traveling at lest 50 knots, if he was really hit, he would have moved more.

Clever, looks well staged.

I have to agree I dont think that it is real as CJRcapt said a plane traveling over 50 knots that guy would have done a littlt bit more than just fell over where he stood, but thats just my oppinion

Trust me,its real.
I used to pick up this TV station and for 6 months this was the main news 🙄
The reason for the plane dipping its wing was to "flour bomb" the reporter

Wow! I really thought it was fake. I guess with the realistic pranks these days, the line between real and fake is hard to find. He is lucky to be alive. 😳

Ouch!

Scary Video!

Flour bombing is fun though (and not that dangourus in the sim), there is a mission included with the Quad City Ulta Light where you have to fly real low and hit a target 😂

i know there is still some doubt as to whether that video is real or not, and i thought in would just say, it is definately real! i have seen this on a number of tv programs, "It shouldn't happen to a tv reporter" "pranks gone wrong" etc
