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.
