EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print titled "Those magnificent men (and women) in their flying machines" we are transported back to the thrilling atmosphere of the National Birdman Rally on Bognor pier in August 1978. The image captures a moment filled with anticipation and excitement as Clive Mills prepares for his daring take-off. The event, which showcased the audacious spirit of aviation enthusiasts from the 1970s, was not only a competition but also a celebration of flight and humor. Men and women alike participated, defying gravity with their homemade contraptions that ranged from whimsical to ingenious. As we gaze at this snapshot frozen in time, we can almost feel the energy buzzing through the air. The determination etched on Clive's face is mirrored by those around him who eagerly await his attempt to soar above the crowd. Will he conquer gravity or will he take an unexpected plunge into the water below? This print encapsulates an era when dreams took flight against all odds, reminding us of our boundless human imagination and relentless pursuit of adventure. It serves as a testament to those brave individuals who dared to challenge conventional norms and push boundaries in search of freedom in the skies. Let this image transport you back to a time when ordinary people became extraordinary aviators, leaving behind an indelible mark on history while inspiring future generations to reach for new heights.
