A pilot has posted selfies taken as he leans out of his cockpit window while flying over Dubai.
Cruising high above the Palm Islands in the incredible shot, Instagram user 'Pilotganso' shared the selfie with his 43,000 followers captioned “It’s already my second hometown #dubai Selfie."
The picture, which has received almost 15,000 likes, hasn’t convinced everyone.
Many users were quick to figure out that the picture is a clear fake.
An eagle-eyed aviation fan, ioto1902, was quick to point out tell-tale signs that the picture was fake."Ship ascending northbound from nowhere. Direction of shade not matching those of houses. Winglet color (inward) not matching Fly Dubai scheme," the user wrote on an aviation forum.
The pilot, in the past, admitted that similar posts were the result of smart editing.
Many pictures of the pilot and his friends in pictures apparently taken with a selfie stick are present on his Instagram feed.
Pilotganso recently admitted in a caption that one of his recent shots from the cockpit high above some paradise islands is fake.
Users haven’t stopped from looking at his ‘irresponsible behavior’, despite his admission that the pictures are fake. A user, lebby, wrote: "Why you acted so dangerous that you might risk of falling and endangered all the passengers?! Duh wth is wrong with you."
Another user, stylebynelli, added: "So happy I am not flying with this guy anyway..people do anything these days just to get likes."
