Feel so sad for all the passengers including the extraordinary photographer, who kept his cool even in the last moments of his own life and took these photos.
The world saw the disappearance of an Air France aircraft during a trans Atlantic flight between Rio to Paris . The two photos attached were apparently taken by one of the passengers in the aircraft, just after the collision and before the aircraft crashed.
The photos were retrieved from the camera's memory stick. You will never get to see photos like this. In the first photo, there is a gaping hole in the fuselage through which you can see the tailplane and vertical fin of the aircraft. In the second photo, one of the passengers is being sucked out of the gaping hole.
These photos were found in a digital Casio Z750, amidst the remains in Serra do Cachimbo. Although the camera was destroyed, the Memory Stick was recovered. Investigating the serial number of the camera, the owner was identified as Paulo G. Muller, an actor of a theatre for children known in the outskirts of Porto Alegre .
It can be imagined that he was standing during the turbulence, he managed to take these photos, just seconds after the tail loss the aircraft plunged.
So the camera was found near the cockpit. The structural stress probably ripped the engines away, diminishing the falling speed, protecting the electronic equipment but not unfortunately the victims.
Paulo Muller leaves behind two daughters, Bruna and Beatriz.
As imagens são verdadeiras, dizem respeito a uma ocorrência fotografada, mas...em ambiente cinematográfico.
Foram retiradas de uma série para tv chamada Lost, sobre tragédias aéreas e não mostram qualquer acidente aéreo real. As pessoas da imagem são actores e o ambiente ficcionado.
Tal como no jornalismo tapa-furos, parecem reais, são reais até certo ponto, mas não dizem respeito à realidade. São virtualmente falsas e podemos saber tudo isso através da mesma internet que serve de meio para a sua difusão. Neste sítio específico.
E no entanto, enganam muita gente que as vê sem qualquer espírito crítico.
Pudera que tivéssemos também um sítio adequado, para denunciar as realidades virtualmente falsificadas por certos jornalistas de ocasião que roubam a verdade, impunemente.
