    Link: 747 Lifting In Place In Extreme Wind Conditions - The plane was awaiting scrapping & engines were removed. The elevators on the rear stabilizers may be to blame as well.

    Something tells me this is a hoax. I would assume that there`s a crane or something on the tail (blocked by the other plane) pushing down. Perhaps this is a job for Mythbusters?

    The plane was saying, "Look at me! I`m still good! There`s no reason to go through with this!"

    An aircraft like that with no engines is unstable - i.e. wants to fall back over its own tail as lift increases. v=OlDmMwI9cikThis is what it looks like

    This happened at the Mojave Airport. I was talking with somebody about this and they said the plane actually turned. That`s an exaggeration but this is no hoax.

    That`s not lifting; that`s rotating. Planes are balanced with very little weight on the nose gear compared to the main gear. If the elevator is in the up position, this can happen with a moderate wind, and if the wind`s coming in at an angle, the force on the vertical stabilizer can easily turn the plane.

    It doesn`t want to die, it`s trying to escape.

    IT never flips people. Just watch it for 30 seconds, the other 2 minutes is kind of a waste. Same thing over and over.
