English Electric 1:48 231 Squadron OCU, RAF, 1971
When the Canberra entered RAF service in the early 1950's, it was truly a ground-breaking aircraft in every respect. Possessing performance superior to that of many front line fighter aircraft of the day, the Canberra was capable of flying at speeds and altitudes which make it almost impervious to interception by enemy fighters. Setting a number of world speed and altitude records, the highly capable Canberra was coveted by many of the world's air forces and became a great export success for the British Aviation industry. The definitive B.2 bomber variant was licence built in Australia, under the designation Canberra B.20.
