Airliner on a meadow. Photograph with title MEADOW WITH WHITE CHAIRS.


DECEMBER 26, 2012.

The airplane in the photographs served as a reconnaissance plane during the Cold War, checking Czechoslovakia borders with Germany or Austria for possible "trespassers."

Today it stands abandoned on a meadow behind the village. Occasionally members of the local flight club gather in it, birds nest in the engines, but most of the time he rests quietly on his massive undercarriage, bravely braving the time, heat and the cold, the rain and the snow.

Although the socialist regime abused the aircraft, it does not change the fact that it was, and still is, a remarkable work of human hands. When I first saw it, I was entranced by its size, by the hard-to-describe loneliness, and by the peculiar absurdity of an abandoned airliner standing on a meadow behind the tiny village. A fascinating, extremely photogenic artifact, inspiring and unforgettable ...
