Recommended Posts

ML824 at the RAF Museum Hendon. Built as a Mk.III in belfast in 1944 it was then brought up to Mk.IV standard before leaving. ML824 made 11 operational flights with No.201 Squadron at Castle Archdale, Northern Ireland; totalling 127 hours 20 minutes, comprising ten anti U-Boat patrols and one convoy patrol. She was transferred to The Aeronavale in 1951, serving mainly in West Africa. The French presented the aircraft to the Short Sunderland Trust in 1961 and was displayed in Pembroke Dock. The aircraft was handed over to the RAF Museum in 1968. The aircraft is now on display with the public allowed limited access to the interior. A full history is available here. Pics mine.
