Description

This documentary traces the history of the Short Sunderland Flying Boat, from its introduction to service in the RAF in 1938 – it was to become one of the longest serving careers of any front-line aircraft.

The Sunderland was one of the very few types to remain in operational service through the Second World War and the only RAF aircraft to perform front-line duties for the whole of the Korean War.

When it finally retired in 1959, it had served for a total of twenty one years and had built up a reputation as a tough and reliable workhorse.
