Photo Comment

The Sunderlands design was so good that it is one of the very few pre-WWII types to remain in service with the RAF long after the end of that conflict. The type also participated in the Berlin Airlift and the Korean War with the last examples being scrapped at Seletar in 1959. After her RAF service this particular aircraft served for four years with the Aeronavale (51-56) before being donated to the Short Sunderland Trust for preservation.
