Looks like the wing has already started to break off.

The pic though... is it a still or a frame lifted from a film reel.  At 24 FPS you're going to get a shot like that, just about guaranteed.  With a still shot, good luck to you.  And bravery award for hanging around on deck with this guy just metres from hitting you.

yeah the wings in the process of losing the tip, Pretty sure it ended badly for that guy .

Im gunna go with the rip from video, but then, its hard to tell, still with all the classic artifacts in the picture, it looks very film fottage.

I think I've seen it before, a clip of film taken from an escorting destroyer during a convoy run during the battle of Crete is what my memory says.
