Whilst rumaging the other day I came up with the following newspaper clipping circa 1979. You are invited to submit suggestions for a caption (for instance, "Chicks ride in back" or "Where's the gun switch").
Please note that the "unidentified member of the base" is paying no goddam attention whatsoever to the driver and instead appears to be transfixed by the navigator's lap. Looks suspiciously to me like he is examining the equipment, not explaining the equipment.
Winning entry will be treated to a free pilsner at the Bear's Den in Gronlid Canada.
