Original German propaganda photo caption: "Our airman are prepared to make many jokes. Apparently a comrade deserved a little rub in the snow. February 24, 1941."
12/12/2003. Remarks by Carlo Soliani: "The aircraft depicted is a Ju 87 R (R = reichweite, long range), basically a Ju 87 B-2 with enlarged wing fuel tanks and two auxiliary wings tanks. The R version could carry only a single 551 lb (250 kg) bomb under the fuselage. In my opinion this photograph was taken in Norway in 1940. Very likely this is a propagandistic photograph. I have a book that contains a similar photograph, seemingly relevant to the same aircraft in the same occasion. In this photo Norwegian skiers fraternize with German airmen, very close to the Ju 87, photographed frontally."
