The Death of Pelican 16 (DVD)
Following an invitation to take part in the 1994 summer air-show circuit in the UK, Pelican 16, a SAAF Museum Shackleton MR3, and its crew of 19 took off from Cape Town and headed north. But then in the dead of the blackest night, high over the Western Sahara the unthinkable happened; two engines on the starboard side failed within a period of just ten minutes. The aircraft and its crew went down.
It was pitch black outside, no stars in the sky and not even a light on the ground. With two windmilling propellers on the starboard side, it was a given that the aircraft was about to crash. But where? It was impossible to see anything outside. It was only through the professionalism and skill of the crew that they all survived with hardly a scratch. If that were not enough, they were now marooned in a warzone!
This video tells the story of Pelican 16 vividly and accurately. Using actual footage of the restoration and events that fateful night and the days that followed as they unfolded, the viewer is held spellbound as the dramatic story unfolds.
