    Ok, here's the story:

    i run a website for a uk based singer/songwriter (www.cathyburton.co.uk). On the old version of the website, i had a scan of a plane ticket from when she did a gig somewhere in europe. Recently, (the last 6-8 weeks) i'm getting 50+ 404's for this image alone! I removed the image a little while ago as it was pretty pointless, but i'm getting loads of traffic through google image search (various countries) for people searching for "plane ticket" images. Google obviously has some old cache of the site. Try it yourself: http://images.google.com/images?q=plane+ticket&start=100&svnum=10&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&sa=N

    Any idea why i'm getting so many requests for the image?? Baffled me!
