[Update] Jarno Smeets: The Flying Dutchman Video - Real or Fake?

Last weekend, Jarno Smeets has made his life long dream come true. After eight months of hard work, research and testing, he finally managed to fly 100 meters with his self-built wings.

Real or Fake?
Note that many viewers, experts and media channels (e.g. Gizmodo), have expressed doubts about the video, while others believe Jarno is indeed the first "Flying Dutchman." Jamie Hyneman (MythBusters) wrote on tested.com: "The video of Jarno Smeets' flight is cool, and I don't see evidence that it was faked."

Where do you stand? Is it a hoax or not?



[Update]
Floris Kaayk, who went by the name of Jarno Smeets, admitted to the hoax on Dutch TV!
