Yes it is real. Of course the picture you see is of the most recognisable section of the aeroplane. (thankfully it's also the bit with the artwork on it)

Landslides can cause a bit of nuisance though,..like burying things about 8 metres down on a slope that was already at 45 degrees!

: I suppose what's left of the plane is still there.
