Hyderabad: A video where an airplane can be seen flying under the bridge is widely being shared on social media. Social media users are claiming that the video is from Brazil.

"URGENT: Runaway plane has just passed under the Pina bridge making a super risky maneuver! According to information from Barbados dos Famosos, the plane had just collided with a family of pigeons from Conde da Boa Vista and lost control by going through an improper route. Many question the veracity of the video, but it's real. My denialist uncle Marlon just recorded his Xiaomi in one of the towers of the Rio Mar Building (sic)," reads the caption of the viral post.

Fact Check

The claim is False.

NewsMeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search of a screengrab from the viral video. It directed us to a post uploaded on Instagram by a user 'Vertice Treinamentos' on October 29, 2021. He had shared the video with a caption, "But boy, did you make this prep on the Pina bridge? Next post I talk more about the process. Anyone who wants the video, just ask me on WhatsApp (bio link)".

The team also found the post in which he had explained the entire procedure of how the digital art was created on his Instagram page.

The team found many such digital creations by Vertice on his page. The team did not find any report of any such incident taking place in Brazil. However, the team found a report on a Brazilian fact check website 'Boatos' which stated that the video was created using computer graphics and many users had fallen for the prank.

It is therefore evident that the viral claim is False. The viral video is created using some computer graphics.
