AVRO SHACKLETON WR963

RETURN TO FLIGHT

PRESERVE

Avro Shackleton WR963 is one of the last two of her type that has the potential to fly again. But as well as our work to preserve her, we're trying to preserve the memory and legacy of the 185 Shackletons built and the men that operated them.

RESTORE

Restoration work is ongoing, and sometimes there's little visual progress. Find out more about WR963, what we're doing, how we're doing it, and more importantly - why.

 

FLY

Avro Shackleton WR963 last felt air under her wings on 9 July 1991. The most recent Shackleton flight to date took place in December 2009, in the USA. Follow the story as we make steady progress in ensuring that it wasn't the last.
