Short Sunderland

Short Sunderland

No. 10 Squadron was in Britain before the outbreak of war to be equipped with the new Short Sunderland flying Boats. It was joined by 461 Squadron in April 1942 also equipped with Sunderlands which were nicknamed the “flying porcupine” by the German fighter pilots who encountered them, due to the large number of machine guns they were armed with.

Maintenance crews of 10 Squadron RAAF haul a Sunderland ashore into a hanger for maintenance.

The huge Short Sunderland flying boat had a crew of 9 but could accommodate as many as 80 men when used as a transport. Radar had only been introduced to the Sunderland in October 1941.
