Dodgy photo use - courtesy of the BBC

So, the BBC website wants to illustrate a story about a Qantas airliner which has made an emergency landing.

They have a picture on file of a Qantas jet, but how to make it more dramatic?

Easy. Crop the picture so you just have the tail section with the distinctive kangaroo and then tilt it so it looks like the jet has crash landed.

The only giveaway is the building in the background which also appears to be on a dramatic slope.

Get your act together Auntie.
