The Avro Shackleton was an enduring image of the Cold War years from 1951 until 1991. Designed for anti-submarine warfare and maritime patrol duties, Shackletons were adapted for the airborne early warning (AEW) role in 1971. As part of the UK Air Defence Force, No.8 Squadron Shackletons provided airborne early warning for nearly 20 years. The Avro Shackleton and the unmistakeable growl of its four Rolls Royce Griffon engines were a familiar sight and sound at air shows. Michael Rondot's painting captures a familiar scene as a pair of "Tremblers" F-4 Phantoms from 111 Sqn, RAF Leuchars, formate on a Shackleton AEW2 somewhere over the North Sea.
