The demise of Shorts Sunderland NJ177

The photos in this album come from a contributor on a facebook group. The fascinating set show the demolition of a Sunderland that was being salvaged – the aircraft’s serial appears to be NJ177 and the location is believed to be Selatar in Singapore.

Unfortunately the original contributor’s post on FB disappeared and i have been unable to trace the owner for proper credits. Please do leave a FB message here if these happen to be your images.
