GC222. End of an Era by Gerald Coulson.
Entering service in 1951, the Shackleton has been seen worldwide performing anti-submarine and search and rescue duties prior to the installation of the radar necessary for the airborne early warning role in 1972 wit No.8 squadron. Phased out during 1991, and superseded by the Boeing E-3 Sentries, only six remain and are still with No.8 Squadron based at Lossiemouth. They are occasionally called upon to assist for search and rescue sorties and the dubious honour of operating in the conditions depicted. After forty years of sterling service the Shackleton deserves a tribute.
We have the last 6 art prints in this sold out edition.

RS6. Shackleton MR3, 120 Sqdn, Kinloss by Robin Smith.
One of the true workhorses of the RAF is indeed the Shackleton. A commission for an ex Shackleton pilot, thet print depicts a typical air sea rescue mission. Having dropped a smoke flare, the aircraft flies down wind / cross wind of the stricken vessel. Lindholme gear is then released which consists of a 9 man inflatable dinghy connected by two floating ropes several hundred feet long with survival packs on the ends. The survivors then wind drift into the ropes and haul in the gear.
Signed by 3 veteran pilots of 120 Sqdn, Sqn. Ldr. Dick Woodhead, Sqn. Ldr. Bryn Lewis, and Sqn. Ldr. Robin Chandler.
Limited edition of 500 prints.
