Interesting example of why you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet… even when there are pictures.

It’s a completely fake story, perpetuated on YouTube and by syndication across a number of ‘news’ sites. Note the general absence of details such as the date, location, flight number etc and the pilot only referred to as “Jason”.

Was it originally presented as true? I hope not. There are so many holes in the story it's hard to imagine it being presented as true. Not the least of which is that there aren't a lot of birds that can keep up with a passenger jet. Like ... no birds at all.

Sadly yes, and like many stories this type they get further circulated as such... even on sites that should know better.

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes
