This is the former South African Air Force 1723. The successor to Vic de Villiers' Viking, that left the roof in 1987 and ended up in the SAA museum. First flown in February 1958 and on the way to Ysterplaat within a few days. Eventually grounded by late 1977, having expended her fatigue life. On display here initially in original SAAF colours, later red as well as canary yellow and in the shown livery since at least 2010.

The Shackleton first protoype was allocated 7626M(1st December 1959) for use as a Ground Instruction aircraft. It was broken up with the fuselage hulk going to St. Mawgan fire dump in September 1965 with smaller bits noted at 71 MU Bicester. No. 2 RS moved to Cosford in 1965 when Yatesbury closed down. The large hangar in the background still camouflaged from wartime use and still on site today was where the training airframes were kept. A couple of visits in 1960 found 4 Venom NF.3's; 3 Hunters; 2 Lincoln B.2's: and one each of a Canberra, Varsity and Javelin.

Seen here taxi-ing for Prestwick's then Runway 31, fitted with airborne early warning radar and serving with 8 Squadron at RAF Lossiemouth. After retirement in 1991, ferried to the USA where it spent time at the Polar Air Museum, Minnesota, and on the CAF ramp at Midland, Texas. As the world's last airworthy Mark 2, it made its final flight on 16 December 2007 to Tucson Pima County Air and Space Museum, Arizona.
