I think this is funny every time I come across it…

Why would anyone display this image on a departmental web site? I seem to recall an announcement with this image that said something to the effect that they were “preparing to soar.” If you didn’t have a clue as to what the image actually represented, then you might see the flames shooting out the back and think the plane was about to soar into the Stratosphere… But, it is a picture of the French Concorde which in less than two minutes, would crash to the ground killing all on board and several in the hotel which it hit. I’ve mentioned this ironic image to several persons who had editing control of the site, but no one has ever taken the image down. Is this an odd foreboding that the department is blissfully working away, unaware that their catastrophic demise is just moments away?
