EDITORS COMMENTS
The Birdmen and women of Selsey: The big splashdown was taking place at the Sussex resort of Selsey. Officially known as the Birdman Rally, it is the day when man and woman pit themselves against the laws of gravity. In spite of his very elaborate wings, this chap heads straight for the water. August 1973. In this print from Memory Lane Prints, we are transported back to a time when dreams took flight and daring individuals defied conventional wisdom. The image captures a moment during the renowned Birdman Rally in Selsey, where participants challenged gravity with their homemade flying contraptions. The atmosphere is electric as spectators eagerly await each contestant's attempt to soar through the air like birds. Among them stands a determined individual adorned in an intricate set of wings that exude both elegance and ambition. With unwavering confidence, he takes a leap into uncertainty. However, fate seems to have other plans for our brave aviator as he hurtles towards the sparkling blue waters below instead of soaring high above them. Despite his meticulous preparations and grand aspirations, nature's forces prove too strong on this occasion. This photograph encapsulates not only the spirit of adventure but also serves as a reminder that even in moments where dreams may fall short, there is beauty in embracing risk and pushing boundaries. It immortalizes an era when ordinary people dared to challenge what seemed impossible – showcasing their determination to conquer new heights.
