Avro Shackleton Mk.3 (WR977) at the Newark Air Museum was built in the late 1950's and saw service with 220, 201, 206, 203 and 42 Squadron. It finally retired in 1971 and was subsequently stored at RAF Finningley. This aircraft was saved from the scrapyard by Newark Museum members who dismantled and transported it to Newark by road, arriving in May 1977. For a small charge, the inside of this fine aircraft can usually viewed.
