Remark Photographer
G-AOLK (cn PAC/225) This 1949 aircraft, formerly VS618, was one of the 252 RAF-surplus Prentices bought up by Freddie Laker and ferried to his company ATEL at Southend and Stansted for conversion as 5-seater GA tourers. Despite a price tag of just £1500, only 28 were civilianised and the rest were scrapped. Since 1964 this one has been owned by Alan Hilton. Seen here on a winter's day being readied for flight with a departing Luftwaffe Transall incongrously framed by the mortal remains of ex-Merpati Vanguard G-BAMX

I can hear this aircraft saying, "Please, please get me out of here!" I love the composition, with all three aircraft pictured.
