    Near here there is a B52 bomber crash site where 2 nukes were on board and only one and a half was recovered.
    Crash caused by a structural failure of the wing.
    Interesting reading:

    I had never heard of this bridge collapse and had of course never seen the video. Fascinating!

    That is prety interesting, Ray. Here's what I read about mine.

    Looks like there may be some evidence now.

    "In July, 2012, the state of North Carolina erected a historical road marker in the town of Eureka, 3 miles north of the crash site, commemorating the crash under the title "Nuclear Mishap."

    eepeqez mentioned the Hindenberg, so I'm guessing aviation mishaps would fit.

    Those pieces of bridge were about 15 miles away from the bridge site and I was clear that a brass plaque at Tacoma Narrows was good, plus who wants to get any closer than that to a nuclear stuff up?

    I'd say that a historic marker for a nuclear accident is perfect.

    Has anyone got any ideas for this one or is it time to open it up a bit?

    How about evidence of any disaster, the site, a plaque, wreckage in a museum, etc, without reference to whether it was caused by a design mistake?

    Of course if anyone can find, say, a Ford Pinto, a Robin Reliant, a Morris Marina or (shudder!) a Leyland P76, I think those would make most automotive engineers old enough to remember them a bit twitchy...

    So living in the Washington DC area.....Traffic around this area is certainly man-made, It's a absolute disaster, and everyone (including the engineers) get "twitchy" when you think about being stuck in it.....but how the hell do you encompass that in a single photo :D

    I can certainly think of some cool things to tag, but I'm overseas away from my bikes, and I think half the US is getting some sort of blizzard right now. That may be the issue.

    I was going to post a picture of a Toyota Camry floor mat but figured that would be pushing it a bit far!

    On 3 April 2006, C-5B 84-0059 crashed following a cockpit indication that a thrust reverser was not locked. The C-5B assigned to the 436th Airlift Wing and flown by a reserve crew from the 709th Airlift Squadron, 512th Airlift Wing crashed about 2,000 ft (610 m) short of the runway while attempting a heavyweight emergency landing at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. The aircraft had taken off from Dover 21 minutes earlier and reported an in-flight emergency 10 minutes into the flight. All 17 people aboard survived, but two received serious injuries. The Air Force's accident investigation board report concluded the cause to be human error, most notably the crew had been manipulating the throttle of the (dead) number two engine as if it was still running while keeping the (live) number three engine at idle. The situation was further worsened by the crew's decision to use a high flap setting that increased drag beyond normal two engine capabilities.<sup id="cite_ref-105" class="reference">[104]</sup> The airframe was scrapped, but the forward fuselage became a C-5 AMP avionics test bed.<sup id="cite_ref-afl_840059_scrap_106-0" class="reference">[105]</sup><sup id="cite_ref-107" class="reference">[106]</sup> This incident led to a redesign of the cockpit engine displays, particularly the visual indicators of a non-active engine.<sup id="cite_ref-108" class="reference">[107]

    OK, go find the number 15 on a sign. No hand written signs, must be a real sign.
