Jerry Proc briefly mentions Autolycus in his review of RCAF Neptune avionics. It it, he says the Exhaust Gas Detectors were "also called ASH". Does that means that Autolycus is likely the same thing as the US Navy's AN/ASH-2?... A Canadian device as I recall.
Shackletons of 8 Sqn pay a visit to Woodford, Cheshire (where they were built) in March 1989
Published on Jul 4, 2014
Five 8 Sqd RAF Avro Shackletons come back to Woodford 9th March 1989 (staying untill 13th March) for a 4 aircraft flypast, on their 40th anniversary, before they go out of service in July 1991, one burst a tyre on landing (the last to land I think) due to a 30 knot gust of cross wind on landing, you'll never hear 'Griffin' engines again. Serial's 1. WL756 (Mr Rusty) 2. WL757 (Brian) 3.WL790 (Mr McHenry later re-named Zebadee) 4. WR963 (Parsley later re-named Ermintrude 2) 5. WR965 (Dill later renamed Rosalie 2 ) & sometimes called Dylan which sadly crashed on the Isle of Harris 30.4.1990 killing the crew.
This is not necessarily, in the order of their landing, does anybody know?
Having been on board Newark's Shacklebomber, I can highly recommend this.Brian Withers, a former Shackleton pilot, gives us a detailed tour of the Shackleton based at Newark Air Museum.
