Unhappy Attack On The British Navy???

According to the source, this photo was taken near the South African coast during a military exercise by the British Navy...
It's not very clear because I scanned it from a Xerox copy.

It's actually a hoax. In fact, National Geographic listed that photo as it's HOAX of the YEAR. The picture is actually 2 photos morphed together. One shows a US Air Force Pararescueman (think Navy SEAL meets paramedic and you'll get a good idea of who they are) during a training mission in San Francisco Bay. The photo of the shark was taken off the Coast of South Africa of a Great White Breaching by a guy who was studying the behavior of Great Whites in the area.

Still, it is a cool picture, huh?

I thought it was a really cool photo when I saw it with the heading "And you thought you had a bad day at the office!"
