    This image is in the Imperial War  museum collection; reference IWM RAF-T4755.  The descpription is "Avro Shackleton MR.3 XF707 of No 206 Squadron flying over the north coast of Cornwall near its home station of RAF St Mawgan in 1964."

    I am puzzled by the shadows.  The sun can never be north of an aircraft flying anywhere from south-east to south-west across the northern coast of Cornwall.  I wonder whether the caption is correct.  Perhaps course is generally north (as Frank suggests) and is inbound from the Channel side?

    I was fortunate to see the Shackleton before the were retired from service - including display at an airshow (at Duxford I think) around 1989.
