There is no shortage of hoaxers out there, so it pays to look at the photos carefully. Putting Northrop's name on the photo is way over the top. That
is the kind of thing that gets a cease and desist letter from a lawyer.
One of the problems with what passes for news reporting these days is the writer often never sees the image that goes with the text. They have a photo
editor (if your lucky) that attaches some stock image to the page. Maybe it is relevant, and maybe it is not.
A bit OT, but here is an over the top example of such crappy journalism. The article is about wifi effecting an aircraft, but the photo is of a known
accident totally unrelated to wifi. The plane incident was due to a brake failure:
Essentially the editors at these news websites feel that the article is "naked" if there isn't a photo to go with it, so attached any photo,
relevant or not. Even good news websites like Arstechnica have photos of dubious relevance.
