New book, 65 pages. Filled with 120 profiles and 23 plan views, take a journey through six decades of the English Electric Canberra in British service. From the prototype A.1 in 'Petter Blue' to 39 Sqn’s last PR.9s in Afghan recon grey, Volume 1 features both classic and more obscure variants in a wide variety of colour schemes and markings. Concise aircraft histories are included, covering date of manufacture, squadron service, airframe fate and other facts of interest. Profiles include both airborne and parked views, and plan and underside projections give view to open bomb bays and payloads. As we know, no two Canberras are the same, and weathering details, bomb trolleys, open hatches, chocks and other accessories all help bring the much-loved workhorse to life. About the only thing missing is that Canberra smell!
