Description: The English Electric Canberra was developed in the late years of the second world war (WWII) to replace Mosquito medium bomber in the Royal Air Force (RAF). The first aircraft achieved initial operational capability with the RAF by 1951. Since then, the Canberra has been performing as medium bomber and tactical reconnaissance aircraft carrying photographic equipment.

Canberra is powered by two Rolls-Royce Avon turbojets rated at 7,400-lb each. These engines are mounted in the projects and are projected forward. Typically, Canberra features a crew of two-man but the Canberra T4 has three seats because it was developed to provide training for Canberra aircrews. In addition to the RAF, Canberra has been sold to Argentina, Chile, India and Peru.

In September 2005 the RAF retired from active service the last Canberra T4. Canberra PR9, which is the last variant in active service and conducts photographic reconnaissance missions, is expected to remain in service until 2006.
