China State TV News Uses Top Gun Footage to Fake Fighter Jet Story

This is the best story I’ve heard all year.

A net user who went by the name Liu Yi pointed out that the jet that the J-10 “hit” is an F-5, a US fighter jet. In Top Gun, what the leading actor Tom Cruise pilots an F-14 to bring down is exactly an F-5. Looking at the screenshots juxtaposition, one cannot fail to find that even flame, smoke and the way the splinters fly look the same.
