Airplane in Troy
image 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:

I should have figured it was Worth1000. Half the hoax photos on the net nowadays seem to come from there.

Definitely a publicity still rather than a frame from the movie.

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.
