Clear the runway, its magnificent Cliff in his flying machine

Clear the runway, its magnificent Cliff in his flying machine.
Cliff, 42, set to work in his backyard at Sawston, Cambridgeshire, to get the thing off the drawing board and into the air. First he tried the hang-gliding principle but he was too impatient to depend on wind and weather. Fitting a rudder and a motorbike engine and propeller he was ready for take-off in his cliffhanger.
May 1977

Clear the runway, it's magnificent Cliff in his flying machine! This print captures the audacious spirit of Cliff, a 42-year-old visionary from Sawston, Cambridgeshire. Determined to turn his dreams into reality, he tirelessly worked in his backyard to bring this extraordinary creation to life. Refusing to rely on unpredictable wind and weather conditions, Cliff ingeniously combined the hang-gliding principle with a rudder and a powerful motorbike engine. The result? A true cliffhanger ready for take-off! Transporting us back to May 1977, this image showcases not only Cliff's remarkable invention but also an era of boundless imagination and fearless exploration. In an age defined by technological advancements and daring pioneers, Cliff stands as a testament to human ingenuity.
