Shackleton ground run
« on: March 26, 2017, 07:06:00 AM »
Saterdag 25 Maart by Ysterplaat LMB
Dit was fantasties gewees, die dreuning van die 4 Rolls-Royce Griffon is ongelooflik en die klank vibreer deur jou liggaam
Onbeskryflik lekker

I heard a comment that she is, but no crew certified to fly her  :sad:

I quote - "this one is airworthy but there is no qualified crew to fly her, then her air time is limited as well, so will not fly again"

Yes I looked up Wiki on the engines & it lists that Shackleton as the last airworthy one.  I heard that it has very few airworthy hours left and it is not worth getting a crew certified  for so few hours.

As iemand sou belangstel, ons gaan beslis, gratis maar die Museum vra donasies, dit gaan maar broekskeur om alles bymekaar te hou

Beslis die moeite en 'n donasie werd
