    Captain Edward Clack 1924 - 2010

    Edward Clack was involved in his twin loves of flying and photography since he took his first snapshots with a Box Brownie in 1935. He joined the RAF in 1942 and, after a distinguished military career, continued his flying as Chief Flying Instructor at Southend Airport for many years.

    Edward continued to photograph the changing landscape, particularly over London, the River Thames, the South Eastern part of England and many other places both at home and abroad, wherever his flying activities took him. His large collection includes classic photographs of the Channel Tunnel construction, London's Docklands famous buildings and parks, many cities, towns and villages and archaeological sites, especially crop marks, a subject in which he was expert.

    His flying career finally ended in 1992 aged 68 when an eye condition precluded him from passing the medical required for a pilot's licence. Sadly he died in April 2010, one of the pioneers of British aerial photography.
