Nope. That's about a fake a photo as it gets. Remember that photo of the tourist standing on top of one of the NW Trade towers and in the background is supposedly the plane on course to hitting it? Yeah, that was a fake too. It wasn't even the same make of plane! #-o

I like the one of the guy getting into the helicopter with the white shark breaching toward him. It's been in Dive Training recently with the quote "the Force Fins are real" (pointing to the swimmer's fins).

I'd forgotten about that until I recently saw Finding Nemo again. "Bruce" was the nickname that was given to the mechanical shark they used in the movie "Jaws". I love how self-referencing Hollywood is....

Apparently disinformation runs rampant. This photo is absolutely positively 100% real. And I'm the dude on the left.

This is a picture of DANA [not really] .. in the REEF class she said she was diving in South Africa and a GW swam right behind her during her safety stop.... If only her friends had a camera, that could be her!

I remember her telling us about that too!! Can you imagine!? Well, so no camera so we can't officially believe her. (but I do anyway...)

Wow!

When I was at the Oil Dock recently, I came across an R.O.U.S.! (Ratfish of Unusual Size!) :axe:
