    Here's one for all those who get annoyed by poor picture library research:

    An unfortunate mistake - one would think someone would have noticed.

    We also have an enormous front page picture of two RAF aircraft in the Daily Telegraph this morning, a modern Typhoon and a Hurricane, the DT have come up with a Typhoon and a Spitfire

    The Spitfire and Hurricane must be two of the most photographed aircraft ever to be produced and the editorial staff of a national newspaper still can't differentiate between them

    Sounds like someone has gone for a quick Google search to find a suitable picture and failed to check any details ;): Type “Quintinshill 1915” into Google image search and you do indeed get a couple of pictures of the Harrow & Wealdstone crash cropping up, quite near the top.
