Runway works in progress, suddenly an aircraft approaches ...

Close call for these runway workers, most likely this happened in Paraguay, still looking for date/time/airport/aircraft details.

Maybe, but it's not in Europe or the USA from what I can tell. Crew possibly informed/aware of temporary displaced threshold but still managed to come in too low (maybe not expecting a vehicle/vehicles to be there)? "Clear the runway" communication not given/received by the work crew? Whatever, some sort of cock up, but "baloney" I not so so sure about that.

Terminal and tower do look like they could be Asuncion.

CGI aircraft. Why would the crew just saunter off anyway?!

Yes, Asuncion, happened 4-5 years ago.

The airport authority appears to have responded to the video as if it were real (or at least, without questioning whether it is real) - and commenting on one of the people in the video as a recognized retired employee. So unless someone went to the trouble of rounding up the original workmen, filming them, and then CGIing the aircraft into the video....

I agree that's not impossible, but it's a lot of trouble to go to ...

So you can hear the supposed wake of the passing aircraft but the flag on the vehicle doesn't change direction and the cones on the runway don't move.

It's fake.

What type is that? Apart from the winglets, it could look vaguely similar to a Tu-134, it passes a little quick for me to determine. So maybe CGI after all?

Watched at speed x0.25. The flag keeps flapping steadily. Should be a fake.

Looks like a Gulfstream to me. And I don't think it's fake.

No, the fact that you can't recognise a Gulfstream doesn't strengthen the case for it being CGI.

Hoskin's rule No 4 of being on the runway: keep your flashing roof lights on!
