Stunning image of a South African Air Force Avro Shackleton flying over table mountain. The Avro Shackleton MR 3 was operated by 35 Squadron SAAF. Missions were mostly patrols of the sea lanes around the Cape of Good Hope, but some occasionally ranged as far as Antarctica.
have 1 good memory in 1 of these Shackletons – circa 1980 – as part of testing the Search and Rescue system developed by Infoplan (ex-Armscor) at Silvermine MHQ. Good times!
