    Mookster has already posted on the Three Amigos trip round Gloucestershire and neighbouring counties. I had the aircraft graveyard on my to-do list for a while and finding ourselves in the vincity we pointed the tread-mobile at this spot. There were more aircraft here at one time, and it's all a bit forlorn now. The Shackleton - WR985 - was never even re-assembled after being brought from RAF Cosford, 20 odd years ago.
    The Shackleton - described as "10,000 rivets flying in close formation" was derived from the WW2 lancaster (I thought they were re-fitted Lancasters but reading up I find they were built in the 50's and used bits from other Lancaster derivatives). They were still doing Maratime reconaisance till about 1990. If you want to know more Wikipedia and http://avroshackleton.com have plenty.

    Here're my photos.
