This is a great shot of an out-going shackleton with the new c130 behind. The clean business-like lines of the shackleton mr3, illustrate it's pedigree from the ponderous tail-mounted mr2.This a is a phase 3 model, with the exhaust of the viper jet engine visible aft of the no. 1 engine nacelle. A veritable king of props!
The c130 behind is a rare view of the transparent blister dome above the navigators station; these were soon removed because they were considered pressurization weak points.The clour scheme was the livery as delivered from Marrietta, Georgia.
