Airplane in Troy
From the Hoax Forum: Gutza has submitted this suspicious goof from the movie Troy, which shows an airplane flying behind Brad Pitt (Achilles) as he stands in front of the Temple of Apollo. I saw this movie just a week ago, and I don't remember seeing a plane in that scene. You'd think it would have been pretty obvious. More significantly, the movie sleuths over at moviemistakes.com don't seem to have noted this either, even though I'm sure they'd be falling all over themselves to point it out if it actually was there. The picture, of course, could be a still from the set. But it's most likely just photoshopped.

The picture came from a Worth1000.com contest where contestants were supposed to mae a " director's cut" of a movie. Here's the link:Posted by CharlieH. on Wed Jun 09, 2004 at 02:12 PM
I should have figured it was Worth1000. Half the hoax photos on the net nowadays seem to come from there.Posted by Alex in San Diego on Wed Jun 09, 2004 at 02:39 PM
Definitely a publicity still rather than a frame from the movie.Posted by Ben Syverson in chicago on Fri Jun 11, 2004 at 12:01 AM
There's a more mundane explanation. In fact Brad Pitt is holding his position waiting for the call of action from Wolfgang Petersen. Both were fully aware of the presence of the aircraft and were waiting for it to pass. This happened a dozen or so times a day.Posted by GONZODOODAH on Sat Feb 12, 2005 at 10:20 AM
