EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we are transported back to the year 1976 at R. A. F. Colerne in Wiltshire. The station is preparing to close its doors, and as a result, their beloved museum planes are being sold off. This poignant image captures the bittersweet moment when three young children lend a helping hand in readying a Gloster Meteor aeroplane for sale. Amongst them are seven-year-old Tim Browse, Sofie Skipsey, and six-year-old Michael Bryant. Their youthful enthusiasm shines through as they eagerly assist with the preparations. With wide eyes filled with wonder and excitement, these little aviation enthusiasts embrace the opportunity to be part of history. The atmosphere surrounding R. A. F. Colerne is undoubtedly tinged with nostalgia as it bids farewell to an era of flight that has left an indelible mark on both military and civilian life alike. As we gaze upon this snapshot frozen in time, we can't help but reflect on the countless stories that each aircraft holds within its metal frame. This photograph serves as a reminder of how even at such tender ages, passion knows no boundaries or limitations. It encapsulates not only the end of an era but also represents new beginnings for these young individuals who may one day soar among those very clouds they now admire from below. As we delve into this piece of history captured by Mirrorpix's lens, let us cherish the memories created by R. A. F Colerne's museum planes while bidding them farewell
