I think the damage is real. Perhaps it was a goose.

Yeah, >>> fake <<< it is. There is no airline named "branit.com" (look closely at the winglet which is painted in Southwest colours.) around.

The winglet wouldn't have crumbled like that afterwards if the video was real. It's made of aluminium sheeting, not balsa wood. A fragile drone would have been pulverised.

If you freeze the video, you can see it's definitely not a goose.

I meant that in reality it was a goose and the drone was copied in the film later. But perhaps everything was a fake.

SWA are taking action over this video as it appears to be their aircraft, and they are less than amused.
