Moray Firth


Magnificent men and their ‘shack’ flying machines

October 6, 2018

For 40 years, up until the early 1990s, Avro Shackletons were a distinctive sight and sound in the skies above the Moray Firth. The four-engined planes, a development of the famous wartime Lancaster bomber, remained in service much longer than was planned. Now a new book, Shackleton Boys, by Steve Bond, tells the stories of the men who flew “The Shack”, and kept her in the air.
