Built by English Electric in 1950. Prior to delivery to the RAF she was used for 'canopy off' flying trials - experiments to establish the Canberra's limits in the event of a lost canopy during flight. She was capable of flight up tp 400km/h before the pilot experienced too much buffetting. Had an unfortunate runway excursion on 21-Sep-1955 when she failed to stop at the end of Wisley's runway and wound up in a ditch alongside the A3 London-Portsmouth road. Assigned RAAF serial A84-1 but never taken up.
