The extended fuselage aft of the tail now included a transparent tail cone to provide a rear observation post for a prone crewman. Other, less obvious, external changes included the provision of a retractable tail wheel unit with twin wheels, and small ventral camera housings under the extreme rear fuselage. 2’s life, particularly the Phase Modifications, which primarily consisted of internal modifications that were not visible externally and thus, by necessity, largely fall outside the scope of this book, for example Phase I upgrades included the replacement of ASV 13 with ASV 21 radar.

Phase II updates followed in 1962 with Phase III being undertaken from early 1966 to April 1967. On completion, WL754 went to 205 Squadron and was coded ‘J’. 2. Author’s collection Two views of WL754, seen in September 1965, is fitted with a distinctive ‘sparkpluglike’ mast on top of the fuselage which, familiar jokes to one side, is an Orange Harvest mast which was fitted to (some) Shackletons. This device was an ‘S’ and ‘X’ band radar warning receiver used to detect, classify, and ascertain the bearing of radar emissions operating within these specific bands.

A tragic sequence began with a mechanical failure and fire in the starboard outer engine which in turn prevented the propellers from being feathered. The engine fell away leaving the wing on fire, which led to part of the wing also breaking off – despite which the pilots were still able to ditch the machine. Unfortunately a heavy impact caused the fuselage to break apart and although a few crewmen were able to extricate themselves only three survived. Author’s collection First flown on 10 June 1953, WL789 was fitted with a magnetic anomaly detector in a tail boom (MAD boom) during July and August and arrived with ASWDU in September 1953 for MAD trials coded ‘F-D’.
