I don’t know, I wouldn’t think it is possible.
And I don’t think you can embed video.

I don’t know if it’s a hoax, but it is fake.

First of all, the plane couldn’t do the maneuvers it does after the wing comes off.

Second, at the end of the video there are “jumps” as the plane lands.  Not to mention that the video conveniently goes blurry right there even though the shot hasn’t changed and there was no distance/perspective change that would affect that.

And I fixed your post with a link since, as NEO mentioned, you can’t imbed a video.

The stunt itself was fake…it also looks like one of those toy planes.  The sound was just added during editing.

Gonna second on the toy plane. Those things are wicked overpowered on the engines, and are better defined as ‘fin-stabilized propeller missiles’ than relying upon good ol’ Bernoulli for keeping them aloft. Losing a wing wouldn’t be a disaster, and some of them are *designed* to have the wings come off in a crash, to prevent greater damage.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

Very fake indeed.  It looks like it’s animated, actually.

Ah.  That would explain why it looks fake, then.
