 Nice to see pictures of WR963, though I think you may need a few updated shots as she is now in a white Coastal Command scheme seen in progress on a couple of 2010 photos.
We found out recently that WR963 is the last running Shackleton in the world, which means we will be working twice as hard now to keep this old bomber alive.
