There is a new email hoax floating around the net that claims to show two photos from the crash of the Air France Airbus that went down a month ago over the Atlantic Ocean during a flight from Rio to Paris. The claim in the email is that while everybody onboard was killed the memory stick was recovered from the camera and these two images survived.
Well, a quick trip to snopes.com provides all the information you need to know this story is bull.
First off, the email has already made a trek around the world once before. According to snopes a blogger wanted to demonstrate that people don’t really read things. He posted a story that was pretty much identical to this one. It was based on a 2006 accident between an executive jet and a 737. He ran the photos and at the bottom of the story he posted a link that explained the hoax.
Saving the best for last, the pictures might look familiar to some people. If you are a Lost fan you may have seen this crash in the opening episode. The photos are screen caps from promotional footage for the show
