Short Sunderland Mark I, N9029
view of Sunderland Mk III ML839 of No 10 Squadron RAAF, experimentally
fitted with Pratt and Whitney Twin Wasps, May 1944. The engines proved a
success, and were subsequently fitted to all Sunderland Mk Vs. ASV
aerials are clearly visible, but later Mk IIIs and all Mk Vs were fitted
with centimetric radar, the scanners neatly enclosed in streamlined
randomes below the outer wing panels. Note too how the aircraft’s top
surfaces are faded and weathered from months of duty over the Atlantic.
