EDITORS COMMENTS
This print takes us back to the 1970s, capturing a moment in aviation history. The image showcases a Vickers Vanguard aircraft of the Invicta International airline, an iconic symbol of air travel during that era. The story behind this particular snapshot adds an element of suspense and heroism. On August 18th, 1972, this very aircraft was returning from Lourdes with a full load of passengers and priests when an unexpected brake warning light illuminated the cockpit. In a display of skill and composure, Captain Alan Scorer expertly navigated the situation and safely landed the airliner at Newcastle Airport. This photograph not only immortalizes this remarkable event but also serves as a reminder of the trust we place in pilots like Captain Scorer who ensure our safety while soaring through the skies. It is a testament to their unwavering dedication and professionalism. Beyond its historical significance within aerospace technology, this image evokes memories of business travel, vacations, and holidays for those fortunate enough to have experienced air travel during that time period. It transports us back to an era where flying was seen as glamorous and exciting—a symbol of progress and adventure. Preserved by Memory Lane Prints with meticulous detail, this print allows us to relive these moments from yesteryear—moments filled with anticipation before takeoff and relief upon landing safely at our destination.
