Titles: English Electric Canberra No’s 1 to 7

The Canberra was a first-generation bomber built in large numbers during the 1950’s. It proved extremely versatile and undertook a number of varied roles. The aircraft was finally retired from RAF service in 2006, 57 years after its first flight.

Designed as replacement for the De Havilland Mosquito it used a similar philosophy of using a large bomb-load, the most powerful engines available and enclosed in the smallest aerodynamic package. The first aircraft flew in 1949 and proved relatively trouble-free, so the Canberra entered operational service only two years later. It continued to serve in the RAF for the next 55 years.

27 variants were produced covering the bombing, reconnaissance and training roles. The aircraft was licence built in Australia and exported to many other countries. Its biggest export success was to the USAF where it won a USAF contest for a jet bomber to replace the Douglas B-26. Martin Aircraft, whose own XB-51 was an unsuccessful contender in the same contest, was selected to produce the aircraft under licence. See a separate page for manuals on the Martin B-57.

We offer seven titles for various marks of the English Electric Canberra. Each file has been scanned from the original flight manuals and retains any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
