It depends on the size of the implants I suppose.

Yes two things. Firstly she should be blonde because she's trying to hand crank the engine the wrong way. Secondly, if she's checking to see if the motor spins freely backwards, she needs to push not pull.
and her left hand should be over the propeller impeller, however, that airplane uses a variable pitch propellor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Variable_pitch_propeller (second photo) and uses an internal start so she be miles away from it. As I said, she should be blonde.

You certainly shouldn't try this without first reading the manual.

Shame if the 'lady' in the pic ended up like this.

True but not that dangerous ... and it would cover her [possible] implants. I think the reflection maybe exaggerates that possibility.

Apparently no aviators amongst us.

It's not on a flight deck and that aircraft has brakes and an electric start.

It's an F4F Wildcat from WW2 but they have electric starts and brakes, so I can't figure out why she's swinging off the prop.

Because it gives a pleasant tension in her muscles, lifting the buttocks and improving the overall visuals.

Are you suggesting they be placed on every carrier flight deck for morale purposes? Or are you saying all women should crank props?

Correct ... in my book one would be insane to hand-prop a plane without wheel chocks in place. Irrespective of whether it has brakes or not and what type of terrain it's on. A tether on the rear wheel [if possible] is also a good idea.

Mind you ... I suspect that her being in the picture is not for the purpose of giving the plane a hand job. :wink:

Come on MGV12 if you are going to place "spot the danger" photos at least make them correct in all aspects. The photo shows a carrier based aircraft on dry land that was replaced very quickly from a F4FC Gruman Wildcat to a F6F Gruman Hellcat. It was a slow piece of junk. The Americans gave the British the ones paid for by the French when France was invaded. If I were the British I would have refused to accept them.

Apparently anything goes about wrong detail......you've been looking at the arse end of too many "dangerers" me thinks.
For the aviators here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F4F_Wildcat
