Big Planes like the one shown here have a hard time "DODGING" missiles - Thus they shoot out massive amounts of flares.

It was so totally photoshoped.

Yep it`s a fake and it fails.


Just thought I`d take it in a different direction in order to end the bickering about what they are actually doing.

Its dumping flares. Planes do that to light up a large an the ground for many different purposes. Like to help ground units see, or even to light up run-ways that have lost electricity for some reason or another.

Um what its doing is it is using flairs to void missiles. All large cargo planes have well military that is. But its definitely during a drill or the cameras would not be on it

Dammit does no one get it? It`s using the flares to make a "Firebird" behind it! in the still it shows before you start the movie you can see the shape perfectly!

Exactly. The hercules is deploying flares, which deter heat seaking missiles by giving off an equally hot flame. So, the missile locks onto them instead of the plane.
Chaff doesn`t work like that. Chaff is a huge group of fine reflective strips that are thrown off the confuse radar-locking missiles.

A C-130 Hercules deploying flares. An anti-missile countermeasure.

Absolutely beautiful.

Why is it that I am agreeing with a Canadian today? Must be something in the air :-P

Ya that movie sucked hard. And Amanda Bynes sucked harder. I Had to watch it on a flight from Denver to Frankfurt. I think that should be classified as torture and made illeagal. If they have a captive audience then at least show neutral movies.

Why must Amanda Bynes suceed? She`s soo... empty headed. As thought she doesn`t know where she is half the time.

Two of my most favorite things in the world: Planes, and Pyrotechnics.

It`s safe to say that Nightshifter is wet right now. :D
