No, you can not send photos from an airplane to another via AirDrop


A few days ago we echoed with some skepticism of a rather curious news that had become "viral": that of a pilot who was 35,000 feet in height transferred files to another pilot who was about 300 meters from this. Let's, of course, out of the same Wi-Fi radius and of course out of Bluetooth range. Needless to say, no matter Apple's invention, AirDrop in theory could not work .
Well, somehow the pilot uploaded the video to social networks and we are all perplexed, or else judge yourself, since in the previous post you can find the video . The turmoil was maximum , in fact the pilot finished removing it, but as you can still find it on the internet.
So much surprise that the press contacted Singapore Airlines to clarify the matter, and this is what they said:
OUR PILOT WAS RESPONDING TO A MESSAGE FROM A CAPTAIN ON ANOTHER FLIGHT. THE EXCHANGE OF IMAGES TOOK PLACE VIA EMAIL LATER.
Of course, this has more logic, but the assembly is simply perfect and we all have a reasonable doubt .. It was a if I do not see it I do not think so . But even seeing it, logic pointed to a fake .
In fact, our initial theory was that it was an assembly and in fact these messages were being sent with the other captain (usually two pilots in cabin). But neither one nor the other .
It should be noted that Apple says on its official website that to use AirDrop is necessary that both terminals are close and also use both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi to do so. In addition, the video terminals do not have the new Bluetooth 5.0 , the latest standard that offers more coverage and faster transfer. However, Bluetooth 5.0 will be integrated from iPhone 8 and up.
