     The Avro Shackleton is a long-range maritime patrol aircraft used by the royal air force and South African have forced. It was developed by Avro from the Avro Lincoln bomber  (which was also a development of the Avro Lancaster)  and was primarily produced to equip RAF coastal command against the Soviet submarine force.  Entered service in 1951 in the anti submarine warfare and was also frequently deployed in search and rescue roles and even mail delivery and troop transport. The Avro Shackleton was used up until the 1970s  in its maritime patrol role where it was later replaced by the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod.  The aircraft was however used up until 1991 in the airborne early warning role until it was later replaced by the Boeing sentry 

      Early versions of the  Shackleton were fitted with the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine however this  was replaced with the Rolls-Royce Griffon engine  which used a DeHavilland Contra-Rotating Propeller.
