English Electric Canberra B(I)6 - UK - Air Force

The 19 mark B(I)6 Canberras were built in 1955 as an interim measure pending the B(I)8, for ground-attack, interdictor and bomber roles. They served only 213 Sqn in RAFG, but this one (and WT308) went to the RAE instead. Used for weapons trials, the later 'Raspberry Ripple' scheme was modified with white undersides to improve performance of the wingtip mounted cameras. After a period as a ground apprentice trainer, she was scrapped in 1.98 but the nose section was saved for the FAST museum at Farnborough
