Artist's Description

In the late 1940s and early 1950s Short flying boats were the principal form of luxury air travel in the undeveloped parts of the world. Only Sunderlands converted for civilian use by Shorts in Rochester, Kent, were renamed as Solents or Sandringhams. Sunderland V G-BJHS, built in 1944, was converted in Australia and thus remains a Sunderland by name. It is pictured on its last display flight by Sunderland Ltd in 1989 (at West Malling) before being sold to Kermit Weeks in the USA.
