Nazi swastika adorns Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue (not really)
Haaretz.com ^ | 02/12/10 | Staff

2010's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which includes such beauties as Israeli supermodels Bar Refaeli and Esti Ginzburg, includes a photo of a model posing near a World War II-era fighter plane, complete with Nazi swastikas.

The image of model Genevieve Morton leaning against an American warplane sporting WWII 'kill flags' did not reportedly make it to the printed edition of the annual swimsuit issue, but is, however presented in the magazine's popular website.

It's kind of a stretch. It's probably going to take a closer examination of the entire spread to come to the correct scientific and historical conclusion.

When it comes to war porn I look at the aircraft first. Is that a P51 D version? Oh and the girl’s very cute.

I tried to get that second picture from that link to post, but I couldn't get it to work. They've got some kind of block on it.

SI actually hires models who don't look like they a month without eating. It's a pleasant change from your normal wafer-thin model.

"Is that a P51 D version? "

I think the cowling is wrong for a P51. I'm thinking it might be a Hellcat, but it's just a guess.

At least, she’s sitting on one of the swastikas.

It is the canopy throwing me off. Maybe my eyes were focusing on other things. I’m a guy.

I think you’re right but this needs further study of Bar Refaeli and Esti Ginzburg and WW II planes just to be sure.

Yes, that does look more like it. The Hellcat looks a little too stubby up front, unlike the model, of course.

I can’t really post the first thought that came to mind when I saw the pic of the young woman and the name of the plane.

It did involve the word “squirt”.

You do the math.

LOL...

I received the SI swimsuit edition this week. I was disappointed with that segment of the issue. I really did want to see more of the planes. (Wife's finished looking over my shoulder... Great issue!)

P47 was the understated hero of WW2. The P51 got all the glory, the P47 did a lot of train busting. A lot of USAAF pilots owe their lives to this plane. It was a flying tank. Not very prettiest girl at the ball, but would be my first choice to fly into combat.
Same with its namesake, the A10 Thunderbolt

Overlooked in much of the writing on the WW-II airwar was the role of the Tactical Air Forces. It was the flights of P-47s flying cover for Patton’s 3rd Army that enabled Patton to race across France in 1944. Close Air Support(CAS) was a hazardous occupation as the Whermacht was liberally equipped with AA guns.

It had to be comforting to the pilot to be sitting behind that big Pratt and Whitney R-2800 engine while on CAS missions. There were several documented cases of Thunderbolts bring the pilots back to base with a “rough running” engine. The reason for the “rougness” due to a cylinder or two missing!!! 8 .50 caliber Brownings also tended to make an impression, not mention the 5” rockets and 500 and 1000 pound bombs that the P-47 could tote.
