Avro Shackelton

Video Description

In 1991 the Royal Air Force retired what was its last frontline piston engined aircraft after 41 years of service. This was the Avro Shackleton - descendant of the legendary Lancaster. One of those Shackletons, serial number WR963, was flown to Coventry Airport, where she has remained grounded. After years of inactivity a group of ex RAF engineers and aviation enthusiasts are trying to return the aircraft to the skies once more.
