The English Electric Canberra was designed as a jet-powered replacement for the Mosquito and entered service with the RAF in 1951.

Although it was originally designed as a bomber, many variants were made including trainers, strike aircraft, electronic countermeasure, and photo reconnaissance.

The Canberra was used by 35 RAF squadrons and more than a dozen air forces world-wide.

It saw combat during the Suez Crisis, the Malayan Emergency, in Vietnam, Eritrea, Somalia, Rhodesia, South Africa, the Falklands and Afghanistan, covering 5 decades of service.

The Canberra also formed the basis for the American version, the Martin B-57, which was also a highly successful aircraft.

The last Canberras in RAF service were PR9s, and they were retired in 2006.

This example is an B Mk 2 of 10 Squadron RAF 1956. It has the black and yellow 'invasion stripes' used during the Suez Crisis.

All the 'friendly' aircraft - British, French, and Israeli were supposed to have them for the invasion of Suez in 1956, but there were a lot of different views on what the stripes should look like....

Thanks Lyle, I am working my way round to doing a B(I)8 which is the ones my father worked on in the 50s, I want to do a poster for him, but there's a few changes before I get that far, especially to the cockpit...
