I would like to note that the image used in The Flying Brick page portrays a cinder block with wings, a propeller, and a vertical stabilizer. A cinder block is not a brick.

Yes it is.

I think that picture needs to be changed; it doesn't illustrate the Flying Brick trope, it's just a picture of a brick with wings. The picture should be of one or more Flying Brick superheroes demonstrating their abilities—flying and showing off their strength or absorbing bullets or something.

It's already been discussed a couple of times in the past, as the note in the page source says. It won't change anywhere soon.

It's a simple enough trope that there won't be confusion. There's no real reason to change it to an illustrative image.

To add to the discussion of the name origin, there was a flightsim for the archimedes (Interdictor) from 1989 which specifically used the term Flying Brick Mode for the invulnerability cheat (with a predictable easter egg if you switched to external view)
