Photo Comment

Since I was 10 years old I ventured into the TAA Hangar at Brisbane Eagle Farm Airport to look at the aircraft in this historic hangar. In 1987 I had the opportunity to photograph, crawl inside and drool over this wonderful aeroplane for what was to be the last time. I miss those days as I grow old.
