PP12 in Full Swing

The weather has played pretty fairly, and most of the aircraft due in have made it, whilst a few other crews came by road.
The AIRBASE venue has been very welcoming and well received in return. While the BBMF had to pull-out due to the forecast wind conditions, we have still been treated by The Shackleton Preservation Society to a ground engine run.
Two of our Cadets were given the opportunity to join the 8 veterans in experiencing the ground-run from the inside of the Shackleton. Three of the engines were run, and with a combined maximum power of 5880hp, it made quite a growl!
