Shackleton MR3, 120 Sqdn, Kinloss by Robin Smith.


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.
