An Avro test crew demonstrates the Shackleton's single-engine flying abilities as it passes low over the 1953 SBAC Show crowd powered by the outer starboard Griffon alone - the others all being shut down and feathered. WL796 carries an air sea rescue lifeboat under its fuselage.

A somewhat blurry picture but incredible nonetheless. Contra-rotating props : check. Quad engine with only one running : check. A boat tied under the plane : check !
