Relocation of Shackleton WR963

Postby Vulcan Bomber » Wed Dec 27, 2023 2:24 pm

You may or may not be aware of the relocation of Shackleton WR963 currently at Coventry. I've got somewhat involved with this having taken the cockpit section to there new home at Elvington just before Christmas, made various bits of tooling to remove the props, and I'm currently making parts for one of the engine stands.

Theres loads of pictures of the Disassembly on my Facebook pages, along with there own Facebook page, just search Avro Shackleton for that. We also have a Gofundme running and has done us proud: ... air-museum
Any support for the project would be very appreciated, when we started in October, the aircraft was in full running condition (except for a fault in the starter circuit on number 1) which we can fix during the rebuild and she will be in full running condition again when we are finished.
