    Was that a Lancaster derivative? Thought it was a Liberator at first glance.

    Sort of, although it's a totally different plane. The Lincoln came between the Lancaster and Shackleton. Saw dozens of them flying as a kid, I lived near RAF Northolt. Lots of other good stuff flew there too.

    This tells it all. http://bit.ly/30r7pga
    I flew a number of flights in a Shak testing camera equipment when I was doing my military service in the SAAF.

    Paul, thanks so much for your comments. I still think that film is way better than digital (runs for cover).

    All the best you guys.

    I think this probably gives a real insight into the Shacks relationship to the Lanc . Quite a lot of stuff must have been the same
