Boeing F4B-4 NR9846 Featured Print

Boeing F4B-4 NR9846

Boeing F4B-4 NR9846 (ex A9241 / NC-14). The second of two US Marine Corps F4B-4s stripped of military equipment for the Bureau of Commerce (later FAA), in 1940 and registered NC-14. Soon released by the government NC-14 was re-registered NR9846 and sold to stunt pilot Jesse Bristow. NR9846 is seen here before Bristow extensively modified it with I-struts, full engine cowling, variable-pitch propeller and fittings for Jet Assisted Take Off rockets. After successful air-show cemonstrations Bristow sold the aircraft which crashed, flown by the new owner, in 1948. Date: circa 1946

Stuntman attempts to fly car over river Featured Print

Stuntman attempts to fly car over river

Stuntman Bill Johnston of Destruction Squad was supposed to fly his car over a river in the English Midlands, but failed to achieve sufficient speed due to the wet ground. A local fisherman had been persuaded to sit in his boat in midstream so that the car could be photographed flying over it. Instead it splashed down within inches of the boat and the fisherman jumped out of the boat into the water. The driver was unhurt, but as he stood on the roof of his car which was floating downstream the furious fisherman clambered up and delivered a punch to the jaw that sent Bill flying. Seen here is the car just taking off, with the fisherman sitting unconcerned in his boat. Date: 1967

Synchronised Swimming Wedding causes quite a stir Featured Print

Synchronised Swimming Wedding causes quite a stir

August 1962, Kinson, Bournemouth. The wedding of Eileen Hart, 22 of New Milton and David King of Coombe Gardens, Bournemouth caused quite a stir (and claims of a publicity stunt) in the local press (and rather a lot of tutting it seems) when seven of Hart's teammates from the Bournemouth Aqua Theatre's Big Splash summer show posed for the wedding photographs outside the church in their swimsuits. The General Manager of the Pier Approach Baths apologised to the Vicar of St. Andrew's Church (the Rev. Alfred Loughlin) on behalf of the Baths Committee. The whole incident was closed amicably - "They are just high-spirited girls" was the verdict. Date: 1962
