An Avro Shackleton RAF long-range martitime patrol aircraft, with its distinctive contra-rotating propeller engines and twin boom tail, makes a low-level pass over the Sound of Mull, passing Lismore lighthouse on the west coast of Scotland, before heading out over the Atlantic. This digital realisation comprises a background photograph by me and an old USAF public domain image of the aircraft.

    Excellent Image Gary. I used to fly in these, noisy but great fun when out on patrol. – Ted

  • Thanks Ted. Blimey, do you know that’s three people who’ve said the same thing. I was worried that I’d portrayed it a little too low for artistic reasons, but it turns out the operational height was very low (OK maybe not quite that low :)
