    If you run a Facebook page, for an airport, you might not want to post a photo of a plane crash. Especially if said plane crash involved the death of a child and you're making light of it.

    "Because we are such a super airport...this is what we prevent you from when it snows...Weeeee :)," the caption read, alongside branding for Luton Airport, the London-based airport making the post.

    The Independent notes that the photo depicted a plane crash at Chicago's Midway Airport in 2005, an accident which led to the death of a child.
