Air Force One Tagging: Internet Hoax

ABC is reporting:

A startling Internet video that shows someone spraying graffiti on
President Bush's jet looked so authentic that the Air Force wasn't immediately
certain whether the plane had been targeted.
Previously, we had reported on this, and Bluesbutterfly did point out that that in his disclaimer statement that this was an event that did not really take place.

I watched the video several times and could not see any photo manipulation. But the video was not really manipulated. Marc Ecko had rented a 747 cargo plane and painted half the plane to look like Air Force One.

According to ABC Marc Ecko said, "I wanted to do something culturally significant, wanted to create a real pop-culture moment."

He did at a great expense.
