Airfix 1:72 Avro Shackleton AEW.2 - Model Kit

With the ability to mount patrols for up to twelve hours, the Rolls-Royce
Griffon powered Avro Shackleton AEW.2 provided Britain's airborne early
warning protection for almost 19 years. Following the withdrawal of HMS Ark
Royal and her compliment of Gannet AEW aircraft, the Gannet's radar units
were simply removed and attached under the forward fuselage of the new AEW
version of the Shackleton.

Tracing its lineage back to the famous Avro Lancaster bomber, the Shackleton
was a long-range maritime patrol aircraft, which was used primarily on
anti-submarine operations, but was also required to perform a number of other
roles. Entering RAF service in 1951, the majority of Shackletons were powered by
the mighty Rolls Royce Griffon engine and were the last aircraft in the
illustrious line of four engined propeller powered bomber aircraft to see Royal
Air Force service.
