A Plane Is A Plane

Military related illustrations in Israeli media is bad.

Opening up “the leading news and content site in Israel” this morning, one could see this illustration in the header:


The caption reads: “The British ‘Typhoon’ plane”

That is, of course, not true, as the aircraft pictured is the Harrier, and this specific image has also won an award (Hover for caption, click for Flickr):

Royal Navy Harrier Jet High Over RAF Akrotiri, Cyprus

FYI: This is a Eurofighter Typhoon.


May I suggest a new catch-phrase for Ynet: “Making Israelis dumber, since 2000”.
