I didn't think it was funny.

I would not have hit it, but I would have probably liked her as a babysitter.

360 scan of the pilot's station of the remaining (1 of only 2) XB-70 Valkyrie bomber. Awesome, btw.

Ran across this site in the comments section of this article about the Valkyrie's arrival at it's new home at The National Museum of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson AFB near Dayton, OH.

Also: Co-pilot's station

'Shopped, maybe?

xoxoxoBruce 11-10-2015 07:46 PM

Most likely, I think that a drilling platform, not a boat.

Doesn't look like a boat, or an iceberg, so I guessed drill rig. And I don't see a tow line so if it is a drill rig it should be anchored. But that's all guesses.

If, whatever it is, is anchored and it's not photo-shopped,
... it may soon be on it's way somewhere else.

Hey Monstro, wait for us. Have you seen Geppetto ?

I found something that said it's screen shot from the movie In The Heart Of The Sea

Nope, I was wrong. I'm sure it's a small boat, and probably a whale shark or whale beneath it. Heart of the Sea has a sailing ship, a whaler probably.
Just kidding about Cuba, no clue where it is.

The picture I embiggened is from...

the Heart of the Sea pic, also embiggened, is from...

I was looking for a source too, and stumbled on a snopes entry for this. They can't decide if it's real and can't find the actual source either. So I'm done.

It's gotta be a movie poster item...

Because while there might often be a small vessel on the water, and while there might often be a whale crossing directly under it,

There's very rarely a high-quality camera positioned 300 feet in the air at exactly the right angle to capture the event.

But then again, it turns out scientists use drones to collect snot samples from blowholes. And drones are increasingly equipped with high quality cameras. I can envision a scenario where that's a scientist in the little boat.

And if you do an image search for "blue whales from above," it's a thing. Not a huge thing, but a little thing.

Damnit. And I said I was done.

I will admit that the original image is very artistic. It's too perfect.

Or a plane searching for refugees when a whale happened by.
Maybe a plane searching for whales when a refugee happened by.;)
