Elaine from Pearly Gates Ministries sent this letter and picture:

"I have a picture similar to the one that was supposedly taken from an airplane window. The one I have was taken by an elderly lady from our church in Poteau, Oklahoma. This lady lived in Spiro, Oklahoma and liked to take pictures of storm clouds. She was washing her dishes during a storm and went outside to take the picture I am now submitting. This picture shows the storm clouds and the trees in her back yard. This picture was copied and given to nearly everybody in our church around 1976."
