This is quite real!!  Fokker 50, TF-FIS Sigdís photographed over the mountains in the south of Iceland during a special photo mission on 9. May 1998.  Note the props seem almost stationary due to the high shutter speed of 1/1000. It was very rough at 2000 feet over the mountains that day. Also here the reflected light from the glacier gives the image an almost unreal quality.
