Re: Disasters and accidents template edit

You're probably right that it's not the best choice of photograph. At the same time, though, I was having difficulty finding an appropriate photograph when creating the infobox, and decided to use something striking. I still don't know what picture would be best, but you're welcome to change the template for a picture that you think is better - that's what wikis are for.   You can try looking on Commons, the free media repository for possible images.

Can I just add that I recognise the picture. It's famous; actually it's a still from a famous video (or possibly another shot of the same event). It's a deliberate controlled test of a jet that's been rigged with remote controls, bear that in mind when thinking of other possible disaster pictures - no-one gets hurt there, it was actually an improving-safety thing.
