Rare to see 2 of these aircrat together, let alone a good quality colour shot with good composition and quality. Love it.

Wonderful to see two aircraft together that remind me of my childhood! 'Islander' used to be stored at Calshot in Hampshire, UK but is now at Kermit Weeks' Fantasy of Flight in Florida. 'Beachcomber' is at the Solent Sky museum in Southampton, UK, where you can tour its preserved interior and even climb into the flight deck! It was owned by the husband of Hollywood actress Maureen O'Hara and on at least one occasion she served passengers on board as a stewardess!
