This is a hoax, urban legend and a joke . It first appeared in 2001.

Here's the e-mail you may receive, with the first picture attached:

AND YOU THINK YOUR HAVING A BAD DAY AT WORK !!

Although this looks like a picture taken from a Hollywood movie, it is in fact a real photo, taken near the South African coast during a military exercise by the British Navy.

It has been nominated by Geo as "THE photo of the year".

 

Debunk:

Isn't that an impressive picture! 
Now let me show you some magic, first I'll make the helicopter, bridge and shore disappear. Ta da!

Shark!

Now I'll make the shark disappear, and the helicopter, bridge and shore reappear Ta da!

Can you see what it is yet?  Yes, the first one with the 'shark and helicopter in the same frame' is a composite, a faked picture!

If you receive a message about this then please ignore it and don't pass it on as this only serves to propagate it.
