Oh...wow...long day at work. I sat here looking at this picture for about 20 minutes trying to figure out why that 737 is parked in front of that office building.

You have to admit...it is kind of an optical allusion.

I dont mean to piss on anyones parade, but it looks like its landing as it really is. If you look at the wheels, u can see its BEFORE the building, so it clearly places it off the building, but a nice trick to ones eye.
