Check out our excellent merchandise store available here; 🤍 The English Electric Canberra is a British first-generation jet-powered medium bomber. It was developed by English Electric during the mid-to-late 1940s in response to a 1944 Air Ministry requirement for a successor to the wartime de Havilland Mosquito. Among the performance requirements for the type was an outstanding high-altitude bombing capability and high speed. These were partly accomplished by making use of newly developed jet propulsion technology. When the Canberra was introduced to service with the Royal Air Force (RAF), the type's first operator, in May 1951, it became the service's first jet-powered bomber. In February 1951, a Canberra set another world record when it became the first jet aircraft to make a non-stop transatlantic flight. Throughout most of the 1950s, the Canberra could fly at a higher altitude than any other aircraft in the world and in 1957, a Canberra established a world altitude record of 70,310 feet (21,430 m). Due to its ability to evade the early jet interceptor aircraft and its significant performance advancement over contemporary piston-engined bombers, the Canberra became a popular aircraft on the export market, being procured for service in the air forces of many nations both inside and outside of the Commonwealth of Nations. The type was also licence-produced in Australia by the Government Aircraft Factories and in the US by Martin as the B-57 Canberra. The latter produced both the slightly modified B-57A Canberra and the significantly updated B-57B. The Canberra had a lengthy service life, serving for more than 50 years with some operators. In June 2006, the RAF retired the last of its Canberra’s, 57 years after its first flight. This short documentary, originally produced back in 1989, follows the aircraft during its 40th anniversary, and includes interviews with those that tested it, and flew in operations. The documentary also includes the anniversary ceremony held at RAF Wyton. Thank You All For Watching. Please Like, Share & Subscribe.

The B-57 is a license-built version of the British English Electric Canberra, manufactured by the Glenn L. Martin Company. The twin-engined tactical bomber and reconnaissance aircraft that entered service with the United States Air Force (USAF) in 1953. Initial Martin-built models were virtually identical to their British-built twinjet counterparts; Martin later modified the design to incorporate larger quantities of US-sourced components and produced the aircraft in several different variants. The B-57 Canberra holds the distinction of being the first jet bomber in U.S. service to drop bombs during combat. The Canberra was used extensively during the Vietnam War in a bombing capacity; dedicated versions of the type were also produced and served as high-altitude aerial reconnaissance platforms (the Martin RB-57D Canberra), and as electronic warfare aircraft. The B-57 Canberra was also sold to export customers abroad; further combat use was seen by the Pakistani Air Force during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965 and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. In 1983, the USAF opted to retire the type; the B-57 Canberra's retirement marked the ending of the era of the tactical bomber. The three remaining flightworthy WB-57Fs are technically assigned to the NASA Johnson Space Center, next to Ellington Field in Houston, as high-altitude scientific research aircraft, but have also been used for testing and electronic communications in the U.S. and Afghanistan. At the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, the USAF found itself in dire need of an all-weather interdiction aircraft. The existing inventory of piston-engined Douglas B-26 Invaders had been dispatched in this capacity at the very start of the conflict; however, within only a few months within the theatre, the B-26 had suffered a very high rate of attrition and successes with the type were typically limited. In response to these needs, the USAF requested the British government to provide a private demonstration of the English Electric Canberra, a newly developed jet-powered bomber. On 17 August 1950, the Canberra demonstration was performed at RAF Burtonwood in Warrington, Cheshire, England; during the following month, a team of US test pilots and engineers visited English Electric's Warton factory to perform a series of flight tests and a detailed technical assessment of the aircraft. On 16 September 1950, the USAF formally issued a request for a jet-powered bomber; the sought aircraft had to possess a top speed of 630 mph (1,010 km/h), ceiling of 40,000 feet (12,000 m), and range of 1,150 mi (1,850 km). Full all-weather capability and a secondary reconnaissance role also had to be included in the design. The American contenders included the Martin XB-51, the North American B-45 Tornado and AJ Savage. To expedite the process, only projects based on existing aircraft were considered and, unusually, the service considered foreign aircraft. These included the Canadian Avro Canada CF-100 and the British English Electric Canberra, which had not yet officially entered service with the Royal Air Force (RAF). As part of the USAF's evaluation process, all five aircraft were submitted to a series of fly-offs to determine their performance. On 21 February 1951, a British Canberra B.2 (WD932), flown by Roland Beamont, made the transatlantic journey, arriving in the United States to participate in the competition; by making this journey, the Canberra thus became the first jet aircraft to perform a non-stop unrefueled flight across the Atlantic Ocean, travelling from Warton, England, to Gander, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, in the record time of 4 hours 37 minutes.

As the Korean War broke out in 1950, the United States Air Force desperately needed a medium-size bomber. As the issue became more pressing, they opted to adapt an existing foreign design, a gamble that hadn’t been performed since World War I. The result was the Martin B-57, a Glenn L. Martin-built version of the English Electric Canberra. After arriving in Vietnam in late 1964, the B-57 bomber flew dozens of nighttime missions, dropping its payload from its unique revolving bomb bay door and attacking the Ho Chi Minh supply trail. Despite its relatively brief operational service, the B-57 Canberra will always hold the distinction of being the first jet bomber in United States military history to drop actual bombs during combat. - Join Dark Skies as we explore the world of aviation with cinematic short documentaries featuring the biggest and fastest airplanes ever built, top-secret military projects, and classified missions with hidden untold true stories.

This video is previously unseen RAF Museum Archive footage of different variants of the English Electric Canberra at RAF Cottesmore. Special attention to the different training versions. The Canberra was the aircraft with the longest service history in the RAF. Originally designed to replace the iconic Second World War de Havilland Mosquito, it first flew on 13 May in 1949. The last Canberra went out of RAF service after its final mission over Afghanistan in 2006. Strangely enough, NASA still uses three WB-57 Canberras for research flights. As such, its career continues.

The latter produced the slightly modified B-57A Canberra and the significantly updated B-57B. The Canberra had a long service life, serving for over 50 years with several operators. In June 2006, the RAF retired the last Canberra, 57 years after its first flight. Thank You All for Watching.
To celebrate the return to flight of the Ex-RAF examples of the type - here is a little appreciation video celebrating the Canberra PR9 aircraft which retired from RAF service in 2006 and has been sadly missed ever since. It began its' career as a bomber, and went on to have an exceptional length of service, finally ending its' life as a Photo Reconnasance aircraft, which it performed exceptionally well being able to fly so high. In this video we see it perform a taxi run in private hands at the Kemble Air Day 2007, followed by one of its' final airshow displays as an RAF aircraft the year before (2006) at the Waddington airshow. Included is the famous "blue note pass".

A team of British engineers attempts to move a historic Canberra jet bomber over 400km from Coventry to Newquay in Cornwall for a private collector. The vintage aircraft needs to be restored before it can fly again and so must travel by truck halfway across England. Too large to be moved in one piece, this film follows the team attempt to dismantle the Canberra into many pieces for its treacherous road trip. The job proves to be a huge challenge, as the aircraft must remain airworthy after it has been re-assembled. To fit the bomber onto a convoy of trucks, the team must disconnect the fuselage, wings and tail. They must build a support cradle for each component so they don’t knock or roll about on route while also being able to squeeze through narrow roads and low obstacles on the way. The journey is fraught with problems from rainstorms to traffic-jammed roads. Following a painstaking reconstruction process in Newquay, will this classic aircraft survive the journey to fly again? - Super-size missions, risky routes, and the biggest cargo on the planet-imagine hauling a submarine over dry land, transporting a fleet of mega-yachts across the Atlantic, or relocating 20 ancient Egyptian temples...and now meet the heavy hauliers who tackle incredible odds to get the job done.

To complement the release of the film collection online, the film and sound team are creating a series of show reels to give you a taste of the material that is now readily available at your fingertips! This show reel highlights the RAAF Public Relations 16mm cine films in the Memorial's Film Collection. The RAAF PR collection is the last in the trio of the Directorate of Public Affairs series with over two hundred RAAF PR titles available for download (F02710 to F02829 RAAF News and F10351 to F10459 RAAF Stock Shots). It also pays tribute to the Canberra bomber and the Canberra's long career with the RAAF. The Canberra entered service in 1953 and was only finally retired from the RAAF in 1982. During that period Canberras of No 2 Squadron RAAF were deployed on combat operations from 1958 to 1960 against Communists guerillas during the Malayan Emergency and from 1967 to 1971 in Vietnam. The show reel consists of two parts with the footage taken a decade apart. The first part is made up of clips from almost one hour of camera original Kodachrome out-takes (F10431) from the RAAF newsreel Operation Eastbound (F10465). The snippets of audio were lifted from the newsreel as the out-take footage is silent. Operation Eastbound was an around the world flight by a contingent of three Canberra bombers from No. 82 Wing RAAF and a Hercules transport of No. 36 Squadron RAAF. As the operation's name implies the flight was in an eastward direction and was then the longest flight by RAAF aircraft. The second section shows the Canberra ten years on, losing the sporty silver and white finish, now looking somewhat menacing in a dark camouflage and festooned with bombs. This footage (F02800 and F10431) was shot on Ektachrome by the USAF cameramen and is also silent. A sound track from our Sound collection of intercom and radio communication (S04258) accompanies the film. The voice traffic was recorded in Canberra bomber, call sign Magpie 61, crewed by Wing Commander Francis Downing (pilot) and Squadron Leader Allan Pinches (navigator/bomb aimer) and is best listened too with head phones as you would in a Canberra bomber. Please enjoy exploring, researching and, most importantly, viewing our collection. Links to collection items used in the show reel 🤍 🤍 🤍 🤍 🤍 Antoni Rudnicki, Curator Film & Sound

The Royal Australian Air Force Canberra entered service in 1953 and was only finally retired in 1982. In 1967, the RAAF No. 2 Squadron deployed eight Canberras to the Vietnam War. The Canberras were typically operated in the low-level bombing role, taking responsibility for South Vietnam's southernmost military regions. Upon their re-deployment from Vietnam in 1971, No. 2 Squadron had flown approximately 12,000 sorties and dropped 76,389 bombs, and lost two of their aircraft to missiles and ground fire during the course of the war. 🤍 video from Australian War Memorial
On 3 November we commemorated the 50th anniversary of the loss of 'Magpie 91', a No. 2 Squadron Canberra Bomber that went down near the Laotian-Vietnamese border. The aircrew were Flying Officer Michael Herbert (Pilot) and Pilot Officer Robert Carver (Navigator). The last known radio transmission to the crew were from US ground controllers who praised their efforts by reporting: "that was an excellent run Sirs”. It’s not known what caused the pair to crash. Following the incident, 2SQN and the United States Air Force searched for the pair for three days, eventually declaring Herbert and Carver as missing in action. Their remains were eventually found and repatriated by a Defence Historical Unit on 31 August 2009 arriving back in Australia on 1 September. Lest we forget. #AusAirForce
On the 23rd of August 1962 a Canberra military bomber emergency landed in a field in Lissybroder just outside Dunmore, Co Galway, Ireland. The Ecuadorian air force plane was one of two flying from Quito in Ecuador to Warton in England for a scheduled service. The three men on board were uninjured but the event was the talk of the parish and further afield making national and international headlines.
The English Electric Canberra made its maiden flight in 1949. It was the World's first Jet bomber, and became an aviation record breaker. 'WARHORSE - The English Electric Canberra' was broadcast on UK TV, Mon. 20 Aug. 1990. Seen in this film is Group Captain Reginald McKendrick, (O.C. RAF Wyton at the time of filming). He & two others would sadly die in 1991 when their Canberra T4 crashed at RAF Wyton whilst doing a simulated engine failure at take off.

After a significant effort over a number of years, we are happy to report that the Temora Aviation Museum successfully performed a test flight with their English Electric Canberra TT.18 WJ680 on June 27th, 2021. The flight, the aircraft’s first in a decade, took place at the museum’s home airport in Temora, New South Wales, just 150 miles or so north west of Australia’s capital city of Canberra.
