Is this real?

It looks like a radio controlled model for a lot of the clip!

You tell me?

That's a model.

Notice how it artfully slews round right at the finish, so the side with the broken-off wing is facing away from the camera? Full size planes don't do that on landing; way too heavy for that to happen.

No, it slewed round so the camera could cut to an undamaged full size plane for the alleged pilot to get out of, and did you notice how it slewed round at exactly the right angle too?

Nope, just fake model footage bigged up for publicity.
