S76 poster advert from the early 1980's

Does anyone have a jpeg of the early 80's Sikorsky poster advert which showed a soft focus image of the full length back view of a naked female superimposed along the length of the S76 fuselage? I'd like to have it as my background picture on my PC but over the years I have mislaid my paper copy of the original poster.

This one? Advertised for sale as a poster, simple Google search does wonders! Also featured somewhere in the Rotary Nostalgia thread but Photobucket have closed the link to the image

Ironically, when searching "S76 fast sleek smooth", Jeffrey Epstein comes up (and his helicopter) prominently in the image results.

That's the one, John. Obviously in my simple Google search I failed to find it.

The age of political correctness means we won't see another fast, sleek and smooth marketing campaign like that one in post #2!

Brilliant - thanks Jim. Managed to fiddle around with it to fill my screen but it's up and running as my PC background.

These people claim to have one original poster for sale! I don't think I would send them any of my money.

Sikorsky S-76 Markll Poster Print Collectors Item Fast Sleek and Smooth for Sale - PlusModels"Sikorsky S-76 Markll Poster Print Collectors Item Fast Sleek and Smooth:
$60


In 1983 United Technologies was going to release a poster print celebrating the Sikorsky S-76 Mark ll released the year before. The CEO's wife saw the poster and had a fit. All the posters were ordered recalled and destroyed. But a few escaped, and I have one. Mounted on fiber board and black aluminum framed under glass. Fast Sleek and Smooth is VERY rare, bet you can't google one!"



Or

https://www.ebay.pl/itm/Sikorsky-S-7...-/331773439756

It's in polish and probably says SOLD. The seller though may have some of the original images he used for the ad.

Image is here too:-

I am giving up now -

Flickr offers downloads at various resolutions. No idea if they are any better than previous images. It was fun playing with image search. CLick on one below to zoom in.

I located one a few years back - in the plastic wrapper!!! Never opened it - I've been looking for one opened up since, The guy located about 6 or 7 in a lot - I got it for $50 which I feel was a great deal!
