I was reading a post about the Golden Gate Bridge on In Focus just now and came across this interesting bit of information.

Apparently the photo above taken by Lance Cheung for the US Air Force during a drill is the original image for the helicopter shark hoax image that drifted around the internet a few years back. The Atlantic was the last place I thought I’d find this info. Heh.
