Thanks to the tip off on this one. Furthest place travelled so far, & well worth the drive.
My take on the Shackleton.
Never thought id ever walk on a wing of a plane, nor sitting in the cockpit for a spot of lunch spectating the mini airplanes being flown on the next field.
Access was comical, I simply cannot climb. Soon as my feet leave the ground my fear of heights sets in.
So I'm there doing the splits, one leg on the wing, one leg trying to reach the roof - If anyone had seen me, it would of made good viewing :lol: Getting down was just as bad.
Loved this place,

Ah yes, the Shackleton. Once described as 100,000 rivets flying in close formation....
