Avro Shackleton on the roof of a garage


Johannesburg, South Africa (ZA)
Vic's Viking Garage is a well known landmark in Johannesburg and takes it's name from the Vickers Viking that previously occupied the roof. This is an ex South African Air Force Shackleton.

The Avro Shackleton was a British long-range maritime patrol aircraft for use by the Royal Air Force. It was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber with a new fuselage. It was originally used primarily in the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) roles, and was later adapted for airborne early warning (AEW), search and rescue (SAR) and other roles from 1951 until 1990. It also served in the South African Air Force from 1957 to 1984. The type is named after the polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton.
