Sexy?


In the Sunday story on the lost hydrogen bomb, Guy Raz is introducing the B-47 bomber:
"It was called the B-47; it was really a revolutionary bomber at the time, a really beautiful plane. Here's how military historian, Doug Keeny, describes it:

'The B-47 was a sexy, elegant looking aircraft. It had swept wings, very stylish, rakish swept wings, it had a swept tail. These were all new innovations. It was a jet engined aircraft with pods, they were in pairs.' "

I hear tell the Angel of Death is one sexy babe, too.

Hell, it'd be a privilege to be taken out by a plane like that!

yeah, I guess I didn't realize that death and destructive capability were so sexy.

Wonder if Tonka-toy Razzleberry'd feel the same way if one carpet-bombed his hometown.

Just when you think this tired lot can't be anymore aggravating...
