Avro Shackleton P1719 Stellenbosch Photo  Wally Grieg

A Shackleton was donated to the Stellenbosch Flying Club and was road hauled to Stellenbosch Airfield. Photo taken 16/7/87. I do not know which Shack this was; there were no markings. Possibly this is the Shack which ended her days at the Waterfront. Can anyone confirm this? The port inner engine nacelle is evident and the engine has been removed. A concrete block has been fitted, in place of the engine. This was standard procedure, to prevent the aircraft tilting backwards onto its tail end.   Photo/Info Wally Greig
